Driving the coast road today almost to Washington.

Muson Falls, OR
The park is home to ancient western red cedar and Sitka spruce. An important salmon spawning ground, Munson Creek Falls tumbles 319', making it the tallest waterfall in the Coast Range. 

Big slugs, forgot my salt shaker!

There was a log jam part way down but it still sounded great.


This was coming down the coast highway 101.

Resting atop a sea stack of basalt, more than a mile off the banks of Oregon’s North Coast, the notorious Tillamook Rock Lighthouse, (nicknamed “Terrible Tilly”), is the stuff of aged lore. Although long closed to the public, she still stands today, though battered and bruised, 
a testament to her storied past.

Tilly’s story began in 1878 when a solid basalt rock was selected as the unlikely location for a lighthouse off the coast of Tillamook Head. Danger and intrigue began almost immediately for Tilly. Before work even began, a master mason surveying the location was swept out to sea, 
never to be seen again.


 Wrapping around Tillamook Head, between Seaside and Cannon Beach, Ecola State Park 
stretches along 9 miles of coastline and some awesome views on the hiking trails.


Some nice bald eagles.

Haystack Rock is one of Oregon’s most recognizable landmarks, home to colorful 
tide pools and diverse bird life. It rises 235 feet from the edge of the shoreline.
