Oregon Coast

Oregon Coast View by Karen Gadient, 2015

View from a spot far above Oceanside, Oregon. Despite the sunshine and warmth in Portland, it was a chilly and foggy day once we got to the coast. In fact, we were battered with sand on the beach; the wind was crazy at times.

Still, it was a lot of fun. David and I hiked up this spot, where one can get precariously close the edge and risk death for a snapshot. This was as close as I got, but David wandered out further (while listening to me yelp that I didn’t want him to fall), so maybe he’s got a better shot I can share sometime.

It’s so amazing to hug a tree and gaze out over a cliff to the ocean. 🙂

  1. Wonderful! So very beautiful. I wish I had taken that photo!

  2. Looks like a place I want to visit

  3. The Oregon Coast has to be one of the most picturesque places on earth, and one of my personal faves. There’s a name for those windswept trees (not the species, but the wind-swept-edness of them) Wish I could remember it. Glad you had fun.
    Would love to see what you would do in interpretation of that scene……..

  4. Some day I hope to explore the Oregon coast, beautiful image Karen.

  5. I can imagine the feeling, that looks like a great view from up there! 🙂 And I don’t blame you for not wanting him to get too close to the edge – scary! Edges of cliffs have been known to suddenly give way before now. I don’t think I’d get too close to the edge either. You got to the beach before I did – it’s still on my ‘to do list’!
