A highlight of our trip out west was getting to drive down the Oregon Coast all the way down to California. We had previously taken the Pacific Coast Highway up from San Diego to San Francisco, but had always dreamed of doing the northern route down from the Pacific Northwest. What we saw was nothing short of stunning. Each roadside pull off more astounding than the next.
Along the way we saw whales in Santa Cruz, visited the Monterey Bay Aquarium, camped out, said hello to the San Simeon Seals, pretended to be Goonies in Astoria, measured up to the Redwoods, stood in the shadows of Haystack Rock, explored the martian-like Sisters Rocks and watched the sunset at Arches Rock. Needless to say, it rocked. 🙂
