Oregon Coast

Cape Blanco Lighthouse sits on the most western point of Oregon.  Built in 1870, the lighthouse has survived years of howling winds that continually blow across the bluff.  Parking is available at the lighthouse, but we chose a 4.5 mile loop trail that led us across the beach, then back along the forested cliffs.

The rusted remains of  the Peter Iredale, a four-masted steel sailing ship that ran aground in 1906, are still visible on the shore of Fort Stevens State Park in Oregon.

Heceta Head Lighthouse stands 56 feet tall and is one of eleven lighthouses that dot the Oregon Coast.  First lit in 1894, it continues to shines today with a beam visible for 21 nautical miles.

This path along a section of the Oregon Coast cut through a portion of forest so dense that it created a tunnel effect.
