As soon as we arrived to Yaquina Bay, I became fascinated watching a mother seal and her pup rest on the dark gray stones that lined the beach twenty feet away from me. After observing them for a while, I questioned how such large stones ended up on the beach and learned that they are fragments of ancient lava that exploded after coming in contact with cold seawater and chilled volcanic glass.
Impressed by the stones, I took a walk closer to the shore where the layers were deeper. This was tough because my feet kept sinking, but gratifying because of the naturally beautiful setting and the history.

Here are the images I captured with my device.
