Oregon Coast from Florence to Lincoln City

We had a great three days on the Oregon Coast. If you have never been be sure to make it a destination, there is so much to explore and see, from the dunes, to the tide pools and hikes through the forest everywhere is beauty. These photos are just a few and don't even begin to capture the wonders of the Oregon coast.

I love this bridge over Cape Creek at Heceta Head Lighthouse on Highway 101

This was the assistant's light house keepers home and is now a bed and breakfast at Heceta Head Heceta Head State Park
The sand dunes to the south stretch for 40 miles Oregon Sand Dunes

Devils Churn at Cape Perpetua south of Yachats

A canoe at Devils Lake State Park in Lincoln City we camped in a yurt here at the park. Yurts

The Salmon River flowing into the Pacific just north of Lincoln City Cascade Head Scenic Research Area we did a six mile round trip hike, this is the first viewpoint, only 2 miles up, we hiked another mile up the hill to the second viewpoint but it was to foggy to see anything.

I hope you get a chance to visit the Oregon Coast, these are just a few photos from the middle section of the Oregon Coast.

Have you been there, let me know what you think and how was your trip, any special places we need to check out?


  1. This so makes me wanna take off now for the coast. I have only been to Seaside and Canon beach and I loved both. Good for you for that hike, you earned that view for sure!

  2. Seaside and Canon beach are both great places to go, I don't get there often enough since they are so much further north. We usually go to Brookings or Crescent City both great places too! And, yes the hike was well worth the view, very beautiful hiking through the forest.
