The strong forces of weathering and erosion, coupled with the processes of volcanism and mountain building are responsible for a dramatically different planet than one that existed a billion years ago. Here in southwest Oregon, these same forces were at work for millions of years, transforming a relatively tame Rogue River into one of West's most famous raging rivers. With the rise of the Pacific Coastal Range, the Rogue River began a steady progression of deepening its river channel. The Rouge River Canyon now reaches depths of over 3,000 feet, slicing through one of the richest conifer forests on the continent.
