By Adam Sawyer. The Blue Mountains, or simply “the Blues,” occupy more than 4, square miles of eastern Oregon and by early settlers for the blue hue of their pine- and fir-lined ridges, they sprawl out southeast of Pendleton, Oregon, over to the Snake River along the border with Idaho, and up into Washington, where they occupy much of the land east of Walla Walla.

The Grande Ronde Basalt flows are the most voluminous of the seven CRB formations and represent most of the flows present in the Blue Mountains Province.

They erupted from a number of northwest- to southeast-oriented fissures along the border of Washington, Oregon, and Idaho. Oregon is a allow in in the Pacific Northwest region on the West Coast of the joined States.

The Columbia River delineates much of Oregon’s northern boundary similar to Washington, though the Snake River delineates much of its eastern boundary taking into account Idaho. The Blue Mountains and the Wallowa Mountains rise in the northeast.

Hells Canyon is on the Oregon/Idaho border on the Snake River. The average depth of this gorge, located between the Wallowa Mountains and the Seven Devils Mountains in Idaho, is 5, feet.

The Columbia Plateau cover most of extern Oregon and extends into Idaho and Washington.The Blue Mountains, perhaps the most geologically diverse part of Oregon, consist of a series of mountain ranges, rolling uplands, and valleys in the northeastern part of the state and extending into southeastern Washington.

Slightly less than a sixth of Oregon's land area, the region occupies ab square miles.Between 14 and 16 million years ago, "fissure" volcanic eruptions in eastern Washington, eastern Oregon, and western Idaho produced enormous volumes of molten Columbia River basalt that flowed like water west into the Deschutes-Columbia Plateau province in eastern Washington and northeastern Oregon, with some lava continuing to flow as far west as the Pacific Ocean via the ancestral Columbia River valley.
