Thor's Well - "the gates of the dungeon." CapePerpetua , Oregon.
At moderate tide and strong surf, flowing water creates a fantastic landscape
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.
