Heceta Head Lighthouse

Named after the Spanish Explorer Don Bruno de Heceta, the Heceta Head Lighthouse towers 205 feet above the Pacific Ocean. This lighthouse is a favorite because of the amazing view of the ocean. It's even still active.

This is from the top of the lighthouse.

View of the lighthouse on the hike up to it. You can barely see it through the fog here.

Silver Falls State Park, Oregon

This is one of 10 falls at silver falls state park. The Oregon state parks are so nice, paths were easy to walk. You can hear the falls from the parking lots, was a great hike. I hope to go see some of the other falls next trip out.

Oregon Coast Pictures

Well the day I went sighseeing was foggy and rainy, but the pictures didn't turn out too badly.
You can barely see it in this picture but this is the bridge is Newport, Oregon, it was very pretty with all the fog that day. Look closely and you might be able to see the boat under the bridge. There were also surfers in the bay that morning.

Ocean crashing onto rocks, was very cool looking. As the pressure would build up, the water would go shooting straight up like a geyser.

Yaquina bay Light house. The Yaquina Bay Lighthouse is Oregon's oldest existing wooden-framed lighthouse.

This is on the coast.
