Oregon Coast

I had intended for the Oregon Coast to be the focus of my trip, but the weather was not cooperative. On the days I was there, lots and lots of fog. And unlike the -California coast, the Oregon coast can spend the entire day fogged-in rather than the fog burning off during the day. The sea stacks at Bandon Beach are very compelling but during my trip, Bandon was almost continuously foggy. Thor's Well had also been on my todo list. I visited at only moderate tide, which made going out to the well safer but less dramatic than high tide.
