We took advantage of no rain with the promise of lots coming over the next few days, and went along south coast. This area has lots of logging going on as well as Cranberry Bogs! Who knew! I associate that with Cape Cod, not the West Coast. But again, I loved the sign that said: "Blueberries - Cranberry Lane" - okay, which is it?
There is a bike trail along 101 and you see lots of young people taking advantage of biking the whole route I'm sure
Oregon is known as "The People's Coast" and thankfully over 100 years ago they decided to make the coast public. Consequently there isn't anywhere that you are not free to walk the beaches.
Crunch these numbers: 363 Miles of rugged coastline, tide pools and wildlife to be discovered.
86 State Parks; 11 Lighthouses; 2 mouths of nationally designated Wild and Scenic Rivers that pour into the Pacific; 2 National Forests, with the wind in the trees overhead and trails underfoot winding up mountains and through meadows; and 1 being the People's Coast.
So today, join us in viewing the south coast of Oregon's fantastic scenic coastline. From Gold Beach we see the following: Buena Vista; Cape Sebastian; the Pistol River and the Samuel H. Boardman State Park. Some of these formations in the water are simply amazing and when you think of how they were formed so many millions of years ago, you are in awe of the process.
