Just beyond the Prineville Reservoir stands a rocky monolith called Eagle Rock. Geologically speaking, this landmark is an eroding welded tuff. In layperson’s terms, it’s a big and beautiful old landmark that happens to be a popular rockhounding location. Agate is the name of the game here, with plume, moss, dendritic, and botryoidal all available.
