The Oregon Coast is a beautiful piece of coastline that stretches some 363 miles (584 km) approximately from the Columbia River in the north to the California state border in the south. My drive along this amazing U.S. Highway 101 took from Astoria on the Columbia River in the north right down to Crissey Fields State Park shortly before the Californian border 5 days. I wasn’t in a hurry & was hoping to see some spectacular sunsets along the way.
Three primary landforms are common along the Oregon coast, they distinguish the regions based on their frequency of occurrence & location in relation to the shoreline: cliffs, beaches & stacks. Of course coming myself from a region in the south west of England where the coastline is dominated by a high cliff line & rough surf I felt pretty much at home although you notice that you are somewhere different due to the quaint wooden houses & towns lining the coast.
