So this will be a short, to the point, picture filled post of the last week or so.
After the Redwoods, I went to Brookings, OR. Just one night there as a stopover before heading to Eugene. But I did get a lovely photo of the coast at sunset:
As I headed north from Brookings, the 101 got crowded with RVs and Boats, so I headed inland to Eugene for the weekend. Eugene was a very laid back town, not much going on. I found a few coffee shops, and a few parks, and pretty much spent the entire weekend either walking or reading. It was a very nice relaxing weekend. Not much photography, except for one alley with graffiti:
And a few garden areas with flowers:
From Eugene it was a drive up and almost out of Oregon to Astoria.
Along the way we saw some sea lions:
And saw a cool shipwreck at Fort Stevens state park:
Astoria was cute, I found an awesome coffee shop to hang out at, had an Elvis burger at a local brewery (beef + peanut butter is GREAT!), and checked out the ‘Voodoo lounge’ for a drink. All in all, it was a cool place. And they have a STELLAR bridge over the Columbia river:
They also have a column, which was kind of odd:
From Astoria we went to see Mt. St. Helens. It was a bit out of the way, but I figured I should see it since I was over here. Isn’t she beautiful?:
Oh yeah, but there was fog over the mountain. For the two hours that I sat around waiting there was fog.
So then it was time to move on to Olympic National Park. Which I am still processing photos for, so that will be the next post.
