Carrie Gordon and Derek Loeb will lead a field trip to look at a couple of features of the 40 million year old Wildcat Mountain Caldera. The field trip will begin in Prineville, travel northeast up  Mill Creek to Brennan Palisades.   We will then explore the Stein's Pillar trail.

Initial meetup location will be in Prineville.  A location to meet for ride sharing or caravaning from Bend will be arranged.  Per COGS policy, ridesharing is completely voluntary but it is encouraged because of limited parking at some of the stops.
