Processed Views: 1 Form Follows Geology - Castle Rock by Carleton Watkins
Beacon Rock, Columbia River (Oregon) is a large 840-foot-high basalt plug. The Missoula Floods eroded away the softer outer material. While Lewis and Clark referred to the feature as "Beaten Rock" and "Beacon Rock", early setters called it "Castle Rock". Carleton Watkins made numerous views of Castle Rock from many vantage points.
