McKenzie Geology

September 2, 2009

The combination of the newly resurfaced McKenzie Highway and a bright, sunny day, made for an ideal outing for the 12 participants to explore the geology of this popular area. As on previous trips we started at the junction of Highways 126 and 242, then drove up the McKenzie Pass road, stopping several times to view, examine, and discuss the volcanic features and evidence of glacial activity. We hiked the Proxy Falls loop, and stopped for lunch at Linton Lake trailhead. The trip ended with a view from atop Dee Wright Observatory, a walk on the loop trail over the Yapoah lava flow, and the drive back to Eugene.

Participants were Dan Biengz, Don Clarke, Pat Esch, Jim Gillinger, Richard Heinzkill, Sachiko Iwasaki, Joanne Ledet, Norma Lockyear, Helen Martz, Joe Neal, Ted Walling and Peter Rodda, leader.
