Second Session Added

Fryrear Canyon Geo-Exploration

Led by John Stockham & Derek Loeb

Sunday, November 12

10:00 AM - 3 PM

Please join Derek Loeb for a geo-exploration trip focused on the geology of the late Pleistocene Desert Springs Tuff and Basalt of Plainview and how their deposition was controlled by the paleogeography of the older Deschutes Formation.  Fryrear Canyon is one of many dry canyons in Central Oregon that were eroded during wetter times probably related to glacial cycles. Fryrear Canyon is closed during raptor nesting season from Feb. 1 -  Aug. 31.  We will be hiking about 6 miles, some of which will be off trail, with only minor elevation changes.

Trip is limited to 15 participants.  Please contact Derek Loeb, with any questions.  There will be a ride share meetup option for Bend area participants.

Registration must be done via the registration button on the trip listing on the COGS website.  Successful registration will be confirmed on the webpage by a light green box indicating registration was successful and by a confirmation email.  If you don't get this email you should try the registration process again.  If the trip is full, please join the wait list.
