Route 101 The Coastal Drive

Some of the Northwests best views are along the coast of Oregon. State Parks line the coastal road to provide woodlands and walking trails to the ocean and haystack views.

We traveled the length of the state and returned through the mountains on the Cascades Scenic Byway. There is so much diversity in this state from rich farmlands to the dry areas of the east. I got the chance to try the fruits and wines of this state and all were very delicious.


The cliffs along the coast are always fascinating to watch the waves crash against the rocks.

Natures Fishermen

It is not appreciated by the commercial fishermen that these seals eat a lot of the bounty of the sea. They are fun to watch chasing each other to get a position on the docks.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Beauty, scenery and the friendly people
  • Cons:Too much good food
  • In a nutshell:I would go back anytime.

    the Oregon coast is a wonderful inspiration with all of nature's beauty. Great pics. BTW, thanks for looking at my Oahu pages, check out the sunset in Waikiki from the walkway reef at the Outrigger Reef at the Beach.

    This is a great page. Thanks! I have to agree that the Jet Boat trip is the best! I love the coast of Oregon!

    Judy, I am crazy to come back there after reading your page :-) Haha, I loved those "haystacks", beaches, sceneries, lighthouses and surely Crater Lake (this area was covered by snow in May haha).

    You did an excellent job explaining how beautiful the Oregon Coast is. I saw a similar group of seals at the Undersea Gardens in Newport.
