Currently in Prospect, OR (Low 39 Clouds and Sun High 69)

It cleared up enough yesterday that we were able to do a little sightseeing. We first went to Mill Creek Falls.

Then Barr Creek Falls.

An easy walk to the Avenue of the Giant Boulders since it was downhill but the guide we got at the park said, "hardy walk back up. If you have endurance you will love it". Well Bob gave it a try and he did love it. These boulders were expelled at twice the speed of sound from the eruption that formed Crater Lake 35 miles away.

You can see here how the boulders are different rocks than the walls of the gorge.

Then it was off to Pearsony Falls. Mill Creek splits and you end up with a double falls. Here it is a you approach.

Then the split falls.

Our first look at the Rogue River Gorge from the Prospect bridge.

The falls on the other side of the bridge.

A beautiful part of the country for sure and we are just scratching the surface. We plan to scratch a little deeper today viewing more of the gorge.

Till next time,

Bob and Jo


  1. Beautiful pictures. Loved seeing the falls as we could not make that hike.

  2. We are enjoying your visit there! A place on our list for sure!

  3. I love listening to rushing water. To me it is so calming.
