Geo 730: September 20, Day 628: Anniversary Tyee

Four years ago today, I met Dana Hunter for the first time. We went up Marys Peak to get a good look at a transect of Oregon's Coast Range Geology. So I'm interrupting the current series in the Newport area for a couple of days. (The following day, we went to Florence and the headlands between Florence and Yachats.) Above, we see steeply dipping beds of Tyee Formation along Route 34, a couple miles east of Alsea Pass. This outcrop is close to the Corvallis Fault; it lies just to the west here, and crosses the Coast Range crest on the west side of Alsea Pass.
