CRATER LAKE AND ROGUE RIVER FALLS.
Among Southern Oregen Scenery. A Few of
tke Pleasing Sights Portrayed Cross
lag the Cascades Twice Indian
Curiosities, LinkriUe,Etc ,
This Summer a number of us made up a
party in Jacksonville, Oregon, for the pur
pose of visiting Crater Lake and Roue River
Falls, and some of the vondera of Southern
Oregon scenery. There vv ere two routes av ml
.able, one South of Jacksonville by way of
Linkville and Fort Klamath, and the other
up the Rogue Ki-er to the East. Not wishing
to be partial, and finding it to be quite feasi
ble, we went out by the Rogue river, ciossing
the Cascade range, thence to Fort Klamath,
by Linkville, and again crossing back over
the Cascade mountains, and in this w ay util
izing both routes. We were barely out of
sight of Jacksonville befote we fiist came iu
contract with Rogue river (properly called
Gold river;) up the rier our route lay for a
dist ince of 83 miles; all the time a continuous
Just here I will state' that our outfit con
sisted of a two-seated thorough-brace hack
and two horses add necessary supplies of pro
visions and blankets. In our party were three
young ladies and two young gentlemen. The
young ladies would prepare our meals, whilst
we brought wood, built fires, fetched water,
etc. The trouble of pitching a tent was over
come by improvising a sleeping apartment in
the hack for the girls; we boys just made the
best of a hard bed on the ground alongside
All the way we weio continually passing
through and amongst magnificent scenery,
which can hardly be surpassed in the known
world. The second day out we reached
Dustin's mill, where is situated the
KOGCK RirtK FALLS.
The river at this point makes a fall of prob
ably 400 or 500 feet iu a distance of not over
one mile by a series of cascades; cascades over
which' fish are unable to pass at any season of
the year. The county had just completed a
bridge at the head of the rapids, so that we
eould see and admire the works of nature
Following the river ilovv n probably one mile
we came to a canyon over 300 feet deep,
through which the lapids could bo seen,
although not so swiftly running as they were
at the bridge. Just across this canyon is Seen
what is improperly called Rogue Kiver Falls.
It consists of a large creek that comes pouring
and thundering over the perpendicular walls,
and falls a distance of 182 feet without strik
ing an obstacle. The water, when it reaches
the bottom, is nothing but a cloud of mist,
and is carried by the winds in every direction.
It seems as though nature did not intend
robbing tourists of a nearer view or approach
to this grand sight, as, after a few moments,
we found the natural pass to the water's edge.
The bed of the river was covered with a
heavy vegetation of mOBs, and as we sprang
from bow lder to rock w c w ould sink knee
deep in the moss, which was not the pleasant
est feeling, when one took into account how
damp it was kept by the continual clouds of
spray that swept over it. While we stood
looking and admiring this grand spectacle the
wind suddenly changed, ami we were iinnicili
ately wet to the skin. This was the nearest
wecune to getting untrr the fall. Scarcely a
step further away was another fall, although
sm tiler in size and distance of fall, jet none
the less attractive. Over the l!uIT in one
solid sheet it came, increasing in motion,
until by a projocting rock it is divided in
twain; thus divided, it continued on until it
fell rippling over the rocks into the river be
low. As it came over it was of milk white
ness, and as it descended a blueish tint was
imparted that made it really beautiful. This
is properly and truthfully called the Bridal
Vail. The forenoon quickly passed away in
admiring these natural phenomena, and the
day was well spent both as regards enjoyment
and time; and as a consequence we were
obliged to travel until 10 o'clock at night to
make op for lost time. Another sight is
rVllAMIII CAM ON.
The rier passes through a can) on composed
of a light soil, and as iime and the water
have washed away the loose soil, or rather a
species of pumice formation, it has left stand
ing picturesque, tall and spiral columns of
sandstone formation, of grotesque and weird
shapes. A number of the largest liave crum
bled awy and lay prostrated. As tins is
about the beginning of the canyon, we can
only liken them to sentinels keeping watch
over the entrance of that nver, yet in its in
fancy, and seeing that it takes the straight
and narrow way; although we must say that
it deviates considerably in after scenes and
gets tumbled about in a decidedly careless
manner One hajf ilaj drive and we are at
CtW.r Like, one of the highest points in the
Ca. a .ic range; and Mount McLaughlin, which
loomed up and looks to bi,; from Jacksonville,
is alongside and ilw indies into an insignificant
ly small mountain and instead of being in
the l'ast is in the West, for we have complet
ed the task of ciicuiiyveiiting Mt. McLaughlin
Striking camp on a mall stieam that aiose in
a snow bank near by, and w liii.li can almost
lie called one ot the heads of Rogue liver, we
prepared to do the lake. A half hour's walk
and the task was completed. A giand sight
met us; the air was hushed to a solemn soil
ness that was appallim.'; not a living thing
was "seen; beloie us lay the quiet wute'sof
I RATLH I.IKE,
Not a ripple could be seen; the fuither
banks stood boldly and abruptly be
fore us; the stillness was onl) broken by our
voices; and now we stood before the goal of
our ambition Ciater Lake. Below us, al
most a thousand feet, the waters could be
seen', but no banks. While beneath our very
feet was green grass an! blooming Mowers,
showing that Spring had just aimed, and
cveiy thing becmed fresh. Wo never saw
such a beiutiful arraj of flora befoie. Flow
ers of every description and color enlivened
and beautified the scene Surely the super
stitious Indians had cause to fear this place.
For, as the Indians claim, an evil spirit
dwells here, and all their belief is founded
upon the lict that years ago a party of In
dians attempted to pass over the lake and
thai when near the center their friends upon
shore saw the evil spirit reach up and drag
them down, boat and all. And as a conse
quence it is impossible t get an Indian to
venture near there under any circumstances.
The only clue we can give to this legend is
that thero probably exists at or near the cen
ter of the lake a whiilpool or suck hole, and
that the boat and its occupants were drawn
down into it end first. It is not known that
the lake has any visible outlet, but it is sup
posed that Annie's creek, Wood river and
Williamson river all head here; and if such is
the case, and the location of these sticams be
in ir on that side of the lake, the probable evi
dence of a whirlpool is quite well established.
This we know: That a stick thrown in on tne
West side by us immediately begau floating
toward the South alal . tie, lovl. -A-
great many would like to hear it we will give
a few figures. The lake is feemiugly lound,
and in the center is an island which rises to a
sharp point and which is pionouneed by tho,o
who have visited it, as beingan extinct ciater.
There aie steep and seemingly unacceisible
blulh on all sides, especially on the North,
Bast and South sides, wheie these bin lis range
in height fronifWOto 2,000 feet, several points
being over 1,200 feet high. On the West
sde, on which we stand, is the only place
easy of descent and ascent, which we accom
plished in one hour and a half, and is SM feet
to the water's edge. The other gentleman of
the party and I went to the water's edge.
Thero was hardly a ripple, and the w ater w as
quite cold. Wild flowers grew abundantly
at the very waters edge. After getting down
we found a very short stretch of shallow
water, and we do not doubt but that 20 feet
from shore its depth is thousands of feet. At
a point between the island and the Wtst
banks a measurement of "."0 feet was gotten,
while to the South a short distance uo meas
urement could be obtained. Tjiie lake is vari
ously estimated at from 1,1 to 20 miles atonnd.
The evidence goes to show that this Has once
the home of a volcano, and tlut through some
unknown agency it telescoped and funned as
it has Crater lake, and is so called.
VVUt.N TO VI-ilT Till LAKh.
The best time of the year to visit Crater
lake is undoubtedly August or September, as
at that time the snow has disappcaied, or
quite near bo. We only encountered several
small patches of snow, and these were not in
the way. The treeii grass and Spring Mowers
showed but too plainly that the Winter's
snow had but recently gone oil. The Mora
around the lake and on the neighboring hills
was very beautiful and we came across many
rare plants, During our journey to the lake
we had delightful days of weather, anil it was
neither too cold or too -sarin. Iu the even
ings wo had a full moon. So altogether our
time of going was a very favorable one. Dur
ing our stay in the vicinity of the lake we
twice visited this charming scene. There is
a good road so that one can drive to the lake's
very edge m a carnage.
Leaving Cnter lake camp at 5 o'clock we
drove on over the mountain, down Annie's
creek canyon into Kastern Oregon, and accom
plished a distance of 28 miles before 12 o'clock.
All this distance was driven after dark and
The head of Annie's creek comes out of the
ground iu a s-ot not four feet n-uare, ami is
strong inough to run a Mour mill. The water
is lie cold. After ituiu' from the mountain
side, It Halts almost immediately into a can
j on which prows largei, and is encased by
high perpendicular Hull's of solid basalt rock.
Our route lay alung the caujoa's edge, and
we could distinctly hear the murmur of the
water hundreds of feet below, and seen by
moonlight as we saw it, the rocks anl'crevices
too ghostly and unnatuial shapes, and was a
constant source of pleasiue, and constant sur
prises to us, benighted trav elers. While spin
ning thiough the heavy forest that bolder tho
canyon we suddenly straddled a logr and we
were then and .there obliged to chop it out.
But the event was enjoyed, as it spiced of
roughing it and backwood's life. That night
we camped within a mile of Foit Klamath,
and, next morning, visited the same. We are
now in tho Klamath Lake country. After
ltav nig tho Fort, we next came to the Agency.
Klamath Indian Agency is situated in quite a
favorable locality. The Government has erect
ed school houses, giist mills, etc., for the In
dians as they aie now self-sustaining. Leaving
the Agency, we stiike over to Williamson liv
er, where we make an caily camp for the pur
pose ot fishing. This is, without a doubt, one
of the finest flaliinc grounds in the State. 8uf'
lice to say that w e caught enough for supper
and breakfast, without having to go out of
sieht of camp, ard in an hour at that. While
fishing, we met an Indian who had been fish
ing, and who had half a dc-en that were fully
three feet in length and weighed not less than
fifteen on t a cutv pounds. The next point of
interest is Modoc Point a large and abrupt
piomontory that abuts into the waters of Big
Klamath Lake. A roadway has been ttiade
around this bluif, and although thousand's of
dollars have been spent on it, yet it is now a
rough rocky load. The distance around this
point is five miles. Above the boulders look
ilow n upon us, and below us flashes the tem
pestuous wateis of Big Klamath Lake. Thou
sands of snakes, many of the lattlesnakes of
the most poisonous nature, abound. We coi
neied one big fellow who was tiyiug to swaK
low a rat, and killed him. There were eleven
rattles, showing the-ieptile to be eleven years
old. The rattles are still preset ved by oife of
onr party as a trophy of Modoc I'omt. The
Modoc Indians used to infest this particular
locality; so it was named Modoc l'ointyvftcr
them. The toll gate passed, we gojou tq Mr.

riany tiiends. Our tup from lieic was

This was undoubtedly one of the quickest,
jolhest and pleasantcst trips ever made from
Jackson county to Crater Lake and return
and was duly christened by the party as "the
Comfortable Crowd." Those composing the
party were Mr. Henry 1'ape, Jr., and Miss
Emma I'ape, Miss Fannie Dow ell, Wm. J.
Clarke and Miss Sallie Clarke. Mr. illiam
Shook met tho party at Williamson river,
w here w e had a pleasant eveuiug party of half
a dozen young people from the Agency, and
accompanied us to Linkville. There is at
present a small steamer on the lake, ouued by
Mr. II. M. Thatcher, but while we weie theie
it was away up thy lake logving; so we muld
