This natural spectacle is a salt water fountain called as the Thor’s well. It is found in Cape Perpetua, Oregon.
Cape Perpetua is a forested area of land on the central Oregon Coast, surrounded by water on three sides.
Along the Cape Perpetua coastline there are several unique features as well. The Devil’s Churn is a long crack in the coastal rock that fills with each ocean wave, occasionally exploding as incoming and outgoing waves collide. We get the spectacular view when the tides are at its peak.
The Cape Perpetua Visitor Center is located two miles south of Yachats. The visitor center offers spectacular views of the ocean and coast from its deck. It is also a popular place to watch migrating gray whales.
The Cape Perpetua Shelter and Parapet were listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1989.
Besides Thor’s well; Devil’s Churn and Spouting Horn are also very popular with visitors but all three can be dangerous especially at high tide and during winter storms.
