Places to see
Recommended by the Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral industries

Oregon's geology tells fantastic stories of awesome volcanic eruptions, cataclysmic floods and titanic continental collisions.

To see the places where these events took place and to understand how they have shaped our landscape is a thought provoking and humbling experience.

Over the years, Oregon Geology magazine has featured "Places to see" as signposts that point to our geologic past. Fantastic stories are waiting to be discovered!
