Oregon’s Coastal Cornucopia: Cape Perpetua

DSC09965

Having a few days to explore the Oregon coast with Nana Five, we were looking for a place with great tide pools, beaches, and temperate rain forest trails to explore. We found all this and more at Cape Perpetua National Scenic Area in the Siuslaw National Forest. From anemones and sea stars to krumholtz trees and Sitka spruce, Cape Perpetua really has it all. Factor in an awesome visitor’s center with super-friendly and enthusiastic rangers (they took more time reviewing the Younger Fives’ Junior Ranger booklets than anywhere else we’ve been), and you have all the ingredients for a memorable coastal visit!

    • We’re living in Central Oregon for the month and expected the worse when it came to weather, but even into October we’ve had highs in the 80s and sun just about every day. Good for getting out and exploring, but not so good for the drought they’ve been having.
