Basalt plug on NF 6340

Post by BClick » July 14th, 2021, 10:14 pm

Hey folks, I spotted this basalt pillar along NF 6340 in Mt Hood NF above the Collawash last summer. It's located at 44.95284, -122.05632 and you can see it on satellite view.

It's a pretty striking formation, so I've been wondering - does it have a name? I haven't seen one on any maps.

(Yes, I do want to go back and get another picture without those tree branches ruining the silhouette.)

Its "official" name is Penis Rock.

Near the Dickey Creek Trailhead? Glad someone is going in to Bull of the Woods.

As soon as I saw that I expected some cocky comments. :lol:
