People who love the outdoors will not find a better place than Oregon. Here youíll find lakes, mountains, national forests, ocean, twisted and widing roads that attract bikers and drivers. Endless hiking trails, wonderful people who understand why everyone around the country is drawn here.
One of the wonders that I rode across the entire country showed itself in all its glory. At moderate tide and strong surf, flowing water creates a fantastic landscape. We were lucky enough to be there at the right time.
Thor's Well aka "The gates of the dungeon" on Cape Perpetua:
First we got here before sunset. I booked the motel within 1 mile of here on purpose. We came back here in the morning to see it after sunrise. It can be very dangerous as we had to stand at the edge of this well and when the water shoots up it can knock you over. My son stood behind me and held me in place. Within a few seconds the camera and lens was covered in large droplets. It wasnít easy work.
Like I said before, I believe that many people, even the locals of Oregon, donít realize the existence of an amazing nature place here.

We stayed in a small motel near ocean. The view from our window:
