Random Pictures around Oregon

We went into Portland to pick up our grandson who loves to spend his summer vacations traveling with us. I've included below, some random pictures I snapped along the way to and from the coast to Portland and back. Our trip photos will continue with the next posting...Dennis

Random shot of a portion of Portland as we were leaving the airport area.

Debi loves old churches and I love old farmhouses. This is one of the reasons we travel mostly backroads and not Interstates. A lot of these barns and farmhouses have so much more character than those you'll see in a City.

Another view of the same property. I wanted to get a better view of the house itself, but this was the best I could do. If you look closely, you'll see a peek of the house above the barn in front.

This was a shot along U.S. 26 WB towards U.S. 101 as we crossed over the Cascades.

We finally reached the Oregon coast near Cannon Beach.

We had taken Oregon 6 across to Portland from Garibaldi and not wanting to take the same route twice, we stayed on US 26 for our return to the coast. This dropped us off quite a bit north of Garibaldi so we headed south to home.

A view of the steep cliffs along this stretch of the Oregon coast.

This is what it looks like if you're standing on top of one of those cliffs, looking straight down. There was a sign posted advising "No Diving" I needed to be told.
In the distance is the quaint City of Nehalem and Nehalem Bay
