Thor’s Well, Oregon

Thor’s Well is part of Cape Perpetua, a typical Pacific Northwest headland – a forested area of land on the central Oregon Coast, surrounded by water on three sides. Thor’s Well is also often simply called the Spouting Horn. It is essentially a huge salt water fountain operated by the Pacific Ocean’s power.

This natural spectacle is at its best when it’s the most dangerous to watch – at high tide or during winter storms.
