8/23 Cape Perpetua, OR

Cape Perpetua is a national forest area about 9 miles south of Tillicum Beach, just past the small town of Yachats.  It is drop-dead gorgeous!  The first few photos were taken from the visitor center, which is about 100 feet above the shore.  It has a parking lot with spaces for RVs and a really nice, large deck overlooking the Pacific. 

There are lots of tide pools all over this area, but this set and the ones in nearby Yachats have convenient steps down to them.  

After the visitor center, I drove higher up the mountain to the day use area at the very top!  View is a real "Wow!" from here. 

Looking down at the visitor center using my telephoto lens. 

Looking back into the interior at the mountains.

Whoooo!  Makes me a bit dizzy to look down!  

Today was a fairly clear day, but it is hard to see the mountains along the coast in the distance with the fog banks hanging around.

Way back in the 30s, the CCC built this shelter and the road coming up this mountain.  

Finally, the fog lifted a bit, and now you can see mountains down the coast.
