Driving along Highway 101 is almost indescribable. Through the tall dark cedars, you can see waves crashing into huge rock formations jutting out of the ocean from the narrow road that hangs on the edge of the sheer rock cliffs.
For the entire length of the state, highway 101 hugs the coast and provides view after view after view.
We have sun but the sea fog is never too far away. Gold Beach is our stop for the night; the Chowder House our diner destination.
The southern coast, we are told, enjoy the benefits of the warm and dry Chinook winds. Morning sun shine help us find these special treasures as we take a short walk on the beach before we head out this morning.
We continue up the coast through cute little fishing towns. And just when you think that the ocean is the star of the show, the road winds around a crystal clear lake surrounded by towering pine trees.
