The Umpqua Scenic Byway - Stop #7

Glide, a blink of a town and near the end of the Umpqua Scenic Byway and our 7th and last stop on our day trip.  Well, technically, dinner in Roseburg was our last stop, but this was the last nature stop of the day.  Because we only had the one day, we did not even begin to see everything along the byway.  We missed a lot of falls and other great sites, but we covered a lot of territory and enjoyed a beautiful day.  I think it gives us a reason to make the trip again, perhaps heading in the opposite direction this time?  If you are in the area, never miss the opportunity to take the Umpqua Scenic Byway.  It is a prime example of mother nature at her finest! 

Have you ever seen two rivers collide?
The Little River and the North Umpqua River come together.
The Little River is coming in from the left side of the photo.  I don't think it is as dramatic in the summer months when the rivers are rushing their banks.  Apparently, in the winter months and/or spring run-off you'll see the great collide.
See the guy standing (on the left) on top of the rocks?
See the c-r-a-z-y guy about half way through his jump into the river?
See the c-r-a-z-y guy who lived to swim to shore?

Thanks for coming along on this beautiful adventure!  You never know what's around the next bend when you're taking a drive and that's the very best part of a road trip, don't you think?!
