A pretty impressive geologic feature. The normal flow rate is 900 cubic feet per second (over 400,000 gallons per minute) through this cool old lava tube that collapsed due to the river flow. It creates a thundering roar and very fast, turbulent water. The chasm is 500 feet long, 25 feet wide, and the river surface is about 45 feet below the rim. With an average temperature of only 44 degrees, the native fish do not grow very large.

    Quick morning jaunt on the short gorge trail along the federally designated Wild and Scenic upper Rogue River. (Yes, all of Oregon's rivers are named after breweries -- or is it the other way around? :sweat: )

    Downstream gauge makes me think it was running about twice normal flow with spring snowmelt - probably in the neighborhood of 2000 cfs.

    Had to get back up to Crater Lake by 10am and the 6" of snow overnight was going to make that a longer drive than desired, so I skipped the 3+ miles downstream to the Natural Bridge. Next time...
