Oregon Coast and Redwoods, CA

This morning we drove the rest of the Oregon Coast from our campsite near Sixes, OR (north of Port Orford). I think this was actually the coolest part of the whole coast ;)

Stopping for a walk on the beach. Just without the cocktails and probably a bit chillier than the beaches you visit, Heather :)

Grant tested out the water - apparently it was FREEZING :)

Morning fog

Us on the beach ... with a seagull in the background ;)

We arrived in the Redwoods State & National Parks that afternoon and visited Jeddediah State Park to see the 'old growth' forests (Howland Hill road). These were the first HUGE trees we came up on. Seriously. HUGE.

A really big tree

Grant demonstrating just how big the tree is ;)

Another GIGANTIC tree - called the Boy Scout tree - we hiked about 2.5 miles to check it out. It took both of us to demonstrate how big this one was.

After our visit at the Redwoods we headed north back to Oregon and camped at a place called Union Creek just south of Crater Lake, OR. We had wanted to stop at a cheaper spot just a few miles from here but since it was Saturday of Labor Day weekend it was full. But, at $12 this one wasn't bad either. Doin a lil dishes after supper ...

Back on the road again tomorrow!
