Tamolitch Pool

We decided to go for a hike along a portion of the McKenzie Trail in Oregon. Our destination was Tamolitch Pool. This is almost a five mile round trip hike from the trail head we started from. You hike right by the roaring river all the way. But about half way there you begin to see the lava rocks all around you and the river drops below you. A gorgeous hike.

The pool at the top of this picture is Tamolitch Pool. The river goes underground and resurfaces here at this gorgeous blue pool.

We are maybe 30 feet above this pool. In this photo you can see the type of rock cliffs we are on and see the McKenzie river as it begins it begins it's descent from the pool.

The pool is crystal clear and I would say a deep turquoise color. Just stunning and the color is rich.




We really enjoyed the hike and if you are ever along 126 in Oregon take this hike. You can ask at the forest ranger station for directions. You will be glad you stopped.

That is such a beautiful place to walk. We are getting too much rain. Hoping next week we can get out in the kayaks again.
