Our current climate has bred a new state of mind which begs for moisture. Having lived in the desert for nearly five months now, we have cultivated private indoor gardens and obsess over words like ‘lush’ and ‘rain’. So when the opportunity arose to finally leap the Cascades and roll around in the green moist pastures and deep forests of Oregon’s coastal valleys and beaches; we rolled. Although we’ve done a fair share of exploring since our arrival in the Northwest, we had not yet dipped our toes in the Pacific. With bellies still full of Thanksgiving dinner we left the sand, scrubs, and snow behind to land in Reedsport to roam the dunes before touring the shoreline via HWY 101 past tide pools, sea lion dens, and misty surf towns all the way to Newport. Check out some pics below!
If you’re thinking about touring Oregon’s rocky green and blue coast we recommend Yurting. These seaside canvas huts elevated the ambiance substantially and made for a great little pad to return to after foggy and wet tours of boardwalks and rocky shores.MORE TO SHOP
