Seastacks at Bandon Beach
Bandon offers some of the most accessible seastacks on the Oregon Coast, and geologically, some of the most interesting. Like all seastacks, they mark the remains of the land before it was eroded --and they too are gradually eroding away. But the ones in Bandon are made of Jurassic-age rock that formed well offshore from North America and was later added, or accreted onto the continent, probably during the Cretaceous, about 100 million years ago.

I came here for three days over spring break, 2013 with my daughter, Lindsay. She was home from college and catching up on sleep --so we walked the beach a lot and took some photos!
