I forgot to say that the water for both pool features comes from Caves Creek, which runs through the site. The Chateau is actually built straddling this creek, & a small trickle of it has been diverted so that it runs through the Chateau's Dining Room. This is truly an amazing place!
Hello Janet, Neville, Lunie & Nan! I'm so glad you stopped by, & that you're enjoying my pictures. This drive really was even more special that we expected, & we always enjoy when that happens. I am thrilled to be able to share photos of our beautiful Oregon, & the places we visit, with all of you. Lunie, this fountain & the other one next to the Chateau's Dining Room were built by the Civilian Conservation Corps, a work program established by President Roosevelt to employ men during the post-Depression era. The designs & plans were the work of Thomas Chalmers Vint of the National Park service, who also supervised the projects. They also built a stone campfire ring, retaining walls (one of which you can see above the falls) & low walls along the pathways. They used rocks from the excavation for the foundations of the Chateau, which helps these features to blend in with the rest of the environment. So really, it is both man-made & natural.
Gina, I'm happy for you to get to travel to these wonderful places - and grateful you so generously share them with us. Have a great trip! nan
Beautiful Gina! Natural or man-made?
