Loving the gorge to death

Unbridled growth is destroying us.  These people are lined up to climb over a giant log jam in Oneonta gorge.  Does this look like a natural spot?  Too many people.


"It is so depressing to see such beautiful nature treated like an amusement park. I personally blame Instagram and people going places they see on there to take the same picture for "likes". The amount of selfie-sticks and pooh-bears at Oneanta Gorge the past couple of years have turned it from one of the most magical little hikes in Oregon into a barely recognizable shizshow of crowds. Side-note, someone is going to have an accident at the log-jam there and I am curious to see how this looks in 10 years..."
