Pacific Northwest Beauty
Visiting Oregon on the West Coast of the United States is a must. I was lucky enough to grow up on the Columbia River, which serves as the border between Oregon and the state of Washington. The hiking, camping, and outdoor adventuring in this part of the world are second to none.
The Oregon Coast
I grew up visiting the Oregon Coast. Seaside and Cannon Beach were my backyards. My epic Oregon Coast itinerary takes you from the “Graveyard of the Pacific” in the northwest corner of the state to the central coast and the Oregon Sand Dunes. You will be able to walk right up to the Wreck of the Peter Iredale, a shipwreck on the shore, and you’ll explore Lewis and Clark history – all while enjoying the astounding rock formations of the Oregon Coastline and along Cape Perpetua.
While you can get stamps for your National Park Passport at the many Lewis and Clark stops along the Oregon Coast and at Cape Perpetua, there is only one official national park in Portland. But, man, what Oregon lacks in numbers of national parks it makes up for in beauty.
See this post to explore Crater Lake in Oregon with me. Includes video as well!
During the pandemic, I hunkered down in my hometown and explored the Portland area (on both the Washington and Oregon sides of the border) and along the Columbia Gorge. Check back soon for more posts on Oregon and the beautiful Pacific Northwest. I’ve got more camping, hiking, and outdoor adventuring coming your way soon!
