Pillows at Cape Disappointment State Park

The second installment in the series of field trips to lava pillows has been published. This trip guides you to spectacular pillow exposures of the Crescent Formation at the south foot of North Head, in Cape Disappointment State Park. The pillows are easily accessed via the campground on Benson Beach north of the Columbia River’s mouth. Definitely worth a weekend at the beach!
