The Natural Bridge
of the wild and scenic Rogue River

travel the rogue umpqua scenic byway and the crater lake hwy, oregon hwy 62, see crater lake national park, the wild and scenic rogue river, the wild and scenic umpqua river, hike to waterfalls, hiking trails along the rogue river - the rogue river national hiking trails, and hiking trails along the umpqua river; try the umpqua hot springs, visit toketee and lemolo lakes.

This is the view of the Natural Bridge, looking south from the viewpoint on which one stands, looking out over the bridge and then to the south, to see the river as it emerges. I have never taken a photograph of this view I particularly like. This is the best, but still doesn't do justice to the river and what can be seen by us.
