Rogue Gorge forms a Chasm 500 feet long. The Gorge narrows to 25 feet from the platform's edge to the opposite wall, and it drops 45 feet to the River.
Look down at the River: enough water (410,000 gallons) flows beneath your feet each minute to fill an Olympic-size pool...but with an average temperature of 44F would you want to swim in it? Because of the upper Rogue's very cold water, native fish do not grow to a large size.
Fun: This was on our first trip up to Crater Lake (see previous article) and the lake was to fogged in to see anything. Stopped at the Rogue River Chasm on the way back down. We had our own squirrel tour guides (three of them) to show us around. Hope you enjoy the pics.
