Before we entered the beautiful state of Oregon, we greatly enjoyed the Redwoods. Honestly, I didn't think I'd like these majestic giants more than any other huge trees, but there is something about them...something indescribable. They are the tallest trees, even taller than the Giant Sequoias we saw just a few days ago. It was so incredible just to walk through groves of them, quietly padding along the trail covered in needles, meandering among the giants. Unforgettable.
We now have a "vacation from our vacation"; two full days to enjoy the Oregon Coast and re-acclimate to the PNW. We want to letterbox a bit, walk the beach, visit favorite places and find new ones. And sleep in - that's on the agenda for tomorrow; we are not getting up until 7:30 am! Haha!
So today's stats:
Conversations with a 'friendly' CHP Officer: 1*
Distance hiked: about 2.5 miles, I'm guessin'
Lighthouses visited: 4; Coquille River LH, Cape Blanco LH, Pelican Bay LH and Battery Point LH
Photos snapped: 277
Times I lamented our road trip coming to an end: countless
*Guess he didn't like the way I pulled a u-turn right in front of him coming towards me...but he was speeding, really. I looked before I went, and it was clear! Anyway, no ticket...
