Oregon Coast

Note: This blog post is part of a series documenting a late-May road trip from Los Angeles to Seattle. For other posts in this series, please head to the bottom of the page where links are located. Thanks for reading!

After a brief stint through the Redwood National and State Park, we made our way north to Oregon. While I've heard (and seen) so much about Portland and Oregon's coast in general, I was excited to see it with my own two eyes.


If my memory serves me right, we were only in Oregon for a couple of days. In that time, we hiked up God's Thumb, witnessed sunset (or lack thereof) at Cape Kiwanda and explored downtown Portland.


It was interesting to watch the landscape change between the California coast and the Oregon coast. While California's section was lush with color, Oregon's was more rugged and muted in color.


I probably sound like a broken record at this point, but a couple of days in Oregon weren't enough. I'm excited to get back and explore more – hopefully sooner than later.


This post concludes the documentation of the road trip. I hope you've enjoyed the posts! If you want to read them again (or for the first time), head to the end of the post.

Until next time...
