You take what you can get when so distant from DV. John Day delivers pretty well!

I've said it before but I'll say it again, your videos are really great Gower! Nice little bites, well researched, you obviously know your stuff.

So can you say where that road cut through through the old shoreline is? I'll be driving down that way in a few weeks and I'd like to stop and see the same spot. I know about the terraces on aptly named Shoreline Butte, of course, and I can probably figure out where this one is from your Google earth shot on the video, but I don't think its the kind of thing that can be loved to death?

The time scales are amazing and make us humans and our squabbles seem... irrelevant some times.

Thanks. Looks pretty cool on the map like that. Maybe it was a little cove back in the day with those hills around it, which may have protected it from the big alluvial fan forming all around that area.
