Rogue River Valley, Oregon - Southern Oregon is divided into three main river basins; the Umpqua River, the Rogue River, and the Klamath Basin. The Umpqua meets the Pacific at Reedsport, the Rogue mouth is near Gold Beach, and the Klamath empties at the Redwoods National Park in Northern California. All three rivers have their headwaters in the Cascade Mountains on the slopes of Crater Lake, Oregon's only national park. The Rogue River is a designated National Scenic River, and formed much of the backdrop for the Meryl Streep movie "The River Wild." Jet boat trips and white water rafting are very popular.

Jellyfish

Jellyfish live very well without a skeleton, heart, or brain. Pulsating jellyfish drift aimlessly through the water with tentacles that can grow over seven feet in length. They often provide a temporary home for young crabs and fish, which take up residency in the bell. There are many different kinds of jellyfish. Some are as tiny as an eraser on a pencil. See them on the jelly cam at www.aqurium.org When taking pictures of the jellyfish inside their tank, remember to turn off the flash. The flash will reflect on the glass and ruin your pictures.
