Oregon’s Rugged Coastline

I’ve longed to experience Oregon’s rugged coastline in person ever since the 4th grade, when I was assigned to write an essay on Pacific Ocean sea stacks by my social studies teacher. I can remember dutifully tracing the shapes of coastal rock formations from an atlas I discovered at my community library in preparation for the accompanying poster that counted for 50% of my grade.

60 years later, I finally got to see this exquisite landscape with my own eyes, and it was worth the wait. So much so, that I decided to reenact the assignment and create a new poster of my own images.

No other words are necessary.

  1. When we were out west several years ago, I commented Oregon is the best kept secret. It seems everyone talks about California and Washington but wow Oregon is quite a beauty. We were passing through but had the chance to camp right alongside the coast and do some exploring, quite amazing! Thanks for jogging my memory and sharing your “assignment”.
