The Dee Wright Observatory is a stone memorial to the famed architect Dee Wright. It is located in the middle of a massive lava flow and offers panoramic views of the Cascade Mountain Range, as far north as Mt. Hood. A barrier free access trail takes visitors to an interpretive court, offering information on the history of the structure built in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corp. At the top of the observatory, a bronze peak finder points to geologic features amidst sweeping lava fields. The half-mile Lava River Interpretive Trail takes visitors on a 30-minute walk on a paved surface through lava flows with spectacular vistas of the surrounding landscape.<\/p>","post_name":"dee-wright-observatory-2","post_type":"resource","slug":"attractions","name":"Attractions","lat":"44.3195","lng":"-121.577","distance":"17.3","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/geotourism-sustainable-travel\/dee-wright-observatory-2\/","terms":"a Sustainable Travel<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},{"ID":"1325","post_title":"Three Sisters","post_content":"The Three Sisters area contains 5 large cones of Quaternary age-- North Sister, Middle Sister, South Sister, Broken Top, and Mount Bachelor. North Sister and Broken Top are deeply dissected and probably have been inactive for at least 100,000 years. Middle Sister is younger than North Sister, and was active in late Pleistocene but not postglacial time. South Sister is the least dissected; its basaltic andesite summit cone has a well preserved crater. Most of South Sister predates late Wisconsin glaciation and is therefore older than 25,000 years; however, eruptions of rhyolite from flank vents have occurred as recently as 2,000 years ago. -- Hoblitt, et.al., 1987 \n\nDetails:\n- North Sister, 3,074 meters (10,085 feet)\n- Middle Sister, 3,062 meters 10,047 feet) \n- South Sister, 3,157 meters, (10,358 feet)","post_name":"three-sisters","post_type":"resource","slug":"attractions","name":"Attractions","lat":"44.3192","lng":"-121.577","distance":"17.3","permalink":"\/see-do\/attractions\/outdoors-nature\/three-sisters\/","terms":"an Outdoors & Nature<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Attractions<\/a>)"}]},"success":true,"html":""}
