By now, you probably know I am a “mountain girl”. Water doesn’t excite me too much. I thought about it many times before, but I still don’t know exactly why mountains and rocks excite me so much. Mostly, I guess, is because there are so many “faces” of mountains and rocks. Sometimes, even within a very short hike, you could see so many different sights of a mountain.
Ocean, on the other hand, seems a little boring. It is great, but after one glance, you see pretty much the same sight. For that reason, I didn’t plan to go the coast of Oregon. I have been to the coast of Washington and California. Although some parts of Washington coast are amazing, I wasn’t so interested in seeing another coast.
Then during my trip, I kept on hearing people praising about the Oregon Coast. “It is like no other!” I was intrigued. So I decided to check it out on my own. Well, I am glad I had such strong curiosity. 🙂 Oregon Coast is truly like no other. It is truly amazingly beautiful. I ended up spending almost three days driving and hiking along the coast.
There are so many State Park and National Recreation Sites along the way that I can’t remember them all. I will split this in three parts by the name of towns I went by. Part one: Lincoln City to Newport; part two: Newport to Gold Beach; part three: Golden Beach to California border.
