Along a section U.S. Highway 101 named the Oregon Coast Highway are some vantage points to see the ocean and crashing waves below. One such viewpoint overlooks the aptly-named Sea Lion Beach and one of those iconic coastal lighthouses everyone loves.
This photo exemplifies what is so interesting about the Oregon Coast and why we are drawn to it -- high rocky cliffs and majestic grassy hills that seem to rise from the Pacific Ocean along hundreds of miles, complete with rhythmic waves pummeling the rocky ocean's edge, wide tidepools interspersed with smooth sandy beaches, and historic landmarks like this one.
There is no shortage of great photos available on the Pacific Coast to anyone with a camera, cell phone or tablet, helping make novices and amateurs look like cover photographers for National Geographic. We highly recommend taking a long drive along Northern California and the entire Oregon coastline, spending as much time here as possible.
