Between Reedsport and Coos Bay there are some crazy huge dune areas running along the Pacific. They've done a pretty good job of balancing preservation and access. We saw a ton of dune buggies and motorcycles set up just for tearing up the sand. There were also pristine areas where there weren't even footprints for miles. Day hiking in sand is hard work.
Some sort of tree. I just thought the red skin of bark over the older silver was cool looking.
The view from our living room window in Brookings.
Harris Beach, a short walk down the hill from our motorhome.
There is just no end of rugged, rocky beauty on this stretch of the coast.
Walking along the beach, I came across this rock with a split worn by the ocean. It's probably not clear in the photo, but the split was about 30' high and the water pulsed in and out like it was alive.
We couldn't believe our luck. An actual sunset on the Pacific. It's almost always obscured by some kind of clouds or sea fog. This was on our last night in Oregon too, sort of a "thanks for visiting, come back and see me" message. We'll be back.
