Geo 730: October 3, Day 641: Boiler Bay

If I've been to Boiler Bay before, just a mile or two north of Depoe Bay, it was early in my undergrad years, three decades ago or more. It's an awfully pretty spot, but while there's some nice geology to see, it's mostly out of reach. For example, as one often notes along the coast, there's an angular unconformity between the Miocene Astoria Formation and the (relatively) recent (probably Pleistocene), lighter marine terrace deposits to the left of the small stream near the middle of the photo.
