  • The city of Bend, OR sits below a 4x5 mile caldera, Newberry Volcano, which experts say is still active by seismological standards.
  • The world's smallest official park, Mill Ends Park in Portland, is a round piece of earth just 2' across. It was created in 1948 on St. Patrick's Day by journalist Dick Fagan.
