Columbia River Flood Basalts: For 10-15 Million Years extraordinarily fluid lava erupted from the Cascade system of Volcanoes which for a time formed shield-volcanoes with shape and size that approximated Kilauea, instead of the strata-volcanoes that we see now ie Mt St Helens, Mt Baker, Rainier, Shasta, etc..
This outcrop shows the thickness of a single lava flow. The columnar joints evident in the photo are formed via the slow cooling of molten lavas, which developed these characteristic cooling joints.

Is that your bus? (It's a great picture regardless of who owns the bus!)

That bus was used by the Earth Sciences Department at Simon Fraser University before we purchased our ‘squadron’ of vans...lol.
