Sharing the beauty of our world

Soaring 93 feet in the air, Yaquina Head stands as Oregon’s tallest Lighthouse.  Be sure to pick your ticket up at the park’s Interpretive Center for your tour and climb to the top.

A hike along the Southern Oregon Coast led us down to the beach where yellow flowers bloomed under the shelter of driftwood.

There is no better way to discover the magic of the Oregon Coast than on foot!  A recent walk along a 4.5 mile stretch of the Oregon Coastal Trail revealed this mist-shrouded beach, well below and out of sight of the highway.

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 Cape Disappointment Lighthouse stands on a bluff in Washington State above the north side of the Columbia River.  First lit in 1856 remains the oldest functioning Lighthouse on the West Coast.

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.
