Thor's Well is a unique hole in a geologically recent lava flow at the base of Cape Perpetua on the central Oregon Coast. The ocean bored a tunnel into the lava flow below the waterline, which eventually reached the surface and is gradually growing wider through erosion. The water moves up and down in the well with the swell and tide, making for a mesmerizing sight.
