Hole in the Ground


Hole in the Ground is a physical feature found near Fort Rock. It is located about 6 to 8 miles directly behind the rock as it is viewed from the museum. Although some would like to believe that Hole in the Ground was caused by a fallen meteoroid, it actually is a maar, a volcanic crater formed by steam explosions. The crater is approximately 300 feet deep and a mile wide.
