Almost everyone is an ocean lover, people feel peaceful and soothing sitting on a seashore watching sunset or sunrise. This experience is loved by all, it is like a meditation spot for them. But what if you see something weird in between the ocean, like a huge hole in the ocean. Spooky isn’t it?
There is a place called Thor’s well Oregon coast near Cape Perpetua. Cape Perpetua is a vast forested point projecting into the Pacific Ocean on the central Oregon Coast in Lincoln County, Oregon. The territory is managed by the United States Forest Service as part of the Siuslaw National Forest in the US.
Thor’s Well is a gaping hole, supposedly deep sinkhole gulps the endless stream of seawater around it. In reality, the hole is nearly
20 feet (6 meters) deep, and it is often empty or completely covered by water. Just early and after the high surge, though, Thor’s Well leaves on a splashy show as foamy tides shoot out of the chasm and then drain back down.
Thor’s Well, as the natural wonder is known, is not really bottomless; it is, nonetheless, very risky, also known as the drainpipe of the Pacific Ocean
You should visit there and have some weird experience if you love such outings.
Cape Perpetua is placed about 2 miles (3.2 km) south of Yachats, Oregon, along U.S. Route 101. It is a conventional Pacific Northwest headland, shaping a high vertical bluff above the ocean. Thor’s Well is located near Spouting Horn at Cook’s Chasm in the Cape Perpetua Scenic Area near Yachats. It can be viewed by taking the Captain Cook Trailhead from the Visitor Center where it is tracked down on the rocky edge just north of Cook’s Chasm.
The cape was named Cape Perpetua by Captain James Cook it was discovered on St. Perpetua’s Day on March 7, 1778. This was during the search for the Pacific entrance to a Northwest Passage.
