Geo 730: November 29, Day 698: Hood River Highway

Looking up the highway from our impromptu stop on the way up to Mount Hood, you can see the lava flow on the right, with talus raveling down from the overlying lahar deposits. The road crews have added some sturdy fencing as a further barrier to prevent rocks from rolling out into traffic. But just as we saw with the block knocked out of the Jersey barrier recently, that fencing has taken a lot beating from falling debris.
