KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. – A field trip to examine geologic formations north of Klamath Falls will be offered Saturday, Oct. 14, by the Klamath County Museum.

The outing will involve a strenuous walk over difficult terrain.

“We’ll be looking at a series of formations that vividly illustrate the volcanic and faulting activity that has shaped the landscape of our region,” said museum manager Todd Kepple. “We’ll be going to a couple of spots that are difficult to access, so this outing is recommended for people who are pretty steady on their feet.”

Participants will be able to gather a small number of rocks for personal collections. The trip will begin at 9 a.m., will conclude by noon.

Space is limited, and preregistration is required. To reserve a space and obtain additional details, contact the Klamath County Museum, 1451 Main St. in Klamath Falls, at (541) 882-1000.
