Cooks Chasm

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Cooks Chasm, Cape Perpetua (bobcat)
Coralline algae, Cape Perpetua (bobcat)


Cooks Chasm is one of the sheer-sided inlets on the 40 million-year-old lava foreshore at Cape Perpetua. The Spouting Horn blowhole is here - it is best observed at high tide. Also best seen at high tide is Thor's Well, a 20-foot deep collapsed sea cave that wells and spouts the tidal swells. At low tide, the area exhibits tide pools full of chitons, sea stars, anemone, and various salt water algae.
