Oregon State Parks

Beach grass guards the dunes and the beach beyond on the Oregon Coast.

When the sun set on the Oregon Coast, the Umpqua Lighthouse put on a show.

Dreaming of summer days while watching and waiting for the temperature to rise above 38 degrees.

A three mile hiking trail from the Carl G. Washburne Memorial State Park campground led to this unique view of the Heceta Head Lighthouse.

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.

A lone seagull watches over the shore at Oregon’s Harris Beach State Park.

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.

Plenty of sunshine on the coast of Southern Oregon today where wildflowers are still blooming.  Harris Beach State Park provides a much needed escape from the gloom and drizzle back home.
