Exploring Oregon: A Coastal Adventure

Oregon state had been high on my list of states visit, due to my love of the great outdoors and it exceeded my expectations! Located in the Pacific North West region of the United State of America and is known for its beautiful coastline and stunning landscapes.

Oregon State is home to some of the most beautiful and diverse outdoor adventures in the United States. From the majestic mountains of the Cascade Range to the lush forests of the Coast Range. Check out my 2 day Road Trip On The Oregon Coast Trail to see why so many people love to visit the Oregon Coast every year.

Mountains

There are many mountains within Oregon state, a number of which are in the cascade mountain range. During our travels around the state we saw many snow peaked mountains which dominated the landscape. My favourite of which was Mount Hood which can be easily viewed across the state due to its impressive height of 11249 feet above sea level. I couldn’t get enough of this mountain, stopping where ever possible for a photo opportunity!

Coastline

The Oregon Coast is a captivating stretch of rugged shoreline, dotted with natural wonders, charming towns, and breathtaking vistas. Here are some must-visit places of interest along the Oregon coast :

Cannon Beach

Haystack Rock

Sealion Caves are located 11 miles north of Florence on Highway 101and is an amazing natural wonder. The caves were created over 25 million years ago and it boasts a natural rock dome that stands 125 feet high which is equivalent to a 12-story building and spans an area as wide as a football.

Historic

Oregon State has a rich history and there are many historic sites to explore. I found the Lewis and Clark Expedition fascinating and you can follow in their footsteps starting at the Lewis and Clark State park. Also worthy of a visit is The historic Columbia River Highway which is a 75 mile long scenic drive along this historic landmark. Be sure to take in the views of the towering walls and many waterfalls along this route.
