Caves of the Cascades & Klamaths

The complex geologic forces in northern California have created a region with exceptionally complicated and challenging topography. On the west, the coastal mountain ranges run along the Pacific from the Oregon boundary to Marin County. The state's northern boundary runs through the Klamath and Cascade Mountains and the Modoc Plateau.

Throughout the entire region, cave development may be fund in sea caves, sedimentary formations, and, of course, lava deposits.

This session will be a forum for all things caving-related in the featured area of this convention.
