“The Metolius River emerges from dark holes at the base of Black Butte and flows northward in a groove nestled between the steep fault scarp of Green Ridge and the gently sloping outwash plain to the west...In a vast web of passages inside buried volcanoes, Spring water from rain and snow in the Cascade Range flows underground until it finds a place to emerge. This is a river of springs, a place where groundwater meets the sky.”
Larry Chitwood, Forest Geologist for the Deschutes National Forest
