I got away on Saturday this past weekend escape my house, 104 degree weather in Portland (rare we get that hot) and go hiking on the Oregon Coast which was also unseasonably warm but was only 82 degrees and the water a chilly 55 degrees. It was an easy choice at 5am until the crowds arrived in the afternoon as I was out on a stand up paddle board. After that I packed up and headed back into the furnace that was Portland.
Looking North towards Gods Thumb, the mouth of the Salmon River, and Cascade Head.
Looking South towards Lincoln City Oregon.
I'm grateful to live in such an amazing place with so many outdoor adventure options.
