Oregon Coast – Replay

We are leaving the Oregon Coast tomorrow for the Redwood National Park in Northern California.   We enjoyed our two months here starting in Astoria, Oregon and traveling south 362 miles on Highway 101 seeing soaring ocean cliffs, sea stacks,  forests, farmland and gigantic sand dunes ending at Brookings, Oregon.  We had great walks on the beach, hiking in the forest, running the river rapids, and challenging golf.  For the last 50+ years, Mike and I spent summers in our hometown with desert heat over 100 degrees in the summer.  The coolness and green of the Oregon Coast has been a nice change.   It’s easy to understand why the Oregon Coast made it on the list for “1,000 Places To See Before You Die”.   It is a treasure.
