Cape Mears Lighthouse State Park

  I am linking up with Gemma's  Scenic Weekend

These photos are from my archives and last years vacation to Oregon.  Hubby and I enjoyed traveling up and down the Oregon coast. The Oregon coast is very scenic, I love the rocky coast, the lighthouse and all the critters.

Cape Mears, a high steep bluff is located on the south end of Tillamook Bay, Oregon.

The Cape Mears Scenic viewpoint has three miles of hiking trails. One is the trail to the Cape Mears Lighthouse.



This area also includes the wildlife refuge. There are great viewpoints to see the native birds and whales.



I hope you enjoyed my scenic weekend.  I wish everyone a safe and happy holiday weekend.  

 Thanks for stopping by and I appreciate your comments. Thanks for stopping by to see my post and thanks to Gemma for hosting Scenic Weekends.

Are your lighthouses still manned? All UK ones are now fully automated.

The rocky coastline looks fascinating. And love the squat shape of the little lighthouse. Quite unusual.

That looks familiar! (Although to be honest it's been three or four years since we headed north on the coast...we've been spending most of our Oregon coast time from Florence south. ) Still, it looks like home!
