    Those pics are awesome. That's exactly why I want to see the Oregon coast.

    Side note: Why on Earth would someone name a place Cape Disappointment? Sounds like a bad B grade horror flick.

    According to Wikipedia:

    The cape was named on April 12, 1788 by British fur trader John Meares who was sailing south from Nootka in search of trade. After a storm, he turned his ship around just north of the Cape and therefore just missed the discovery of the Columbia River.[1] Alternatively, the cape may have been named in Nov. 1805 by a member of the Lewis & Clark Expedition, which had recently succeeded in reaching the Pacific, when he found no ships in the vicinity, according to the journal of the expedition as recited in the Ken Burns documentary.
    I've always heard the Lewis & Clark explaination.

    Bad horror flick? I always thought it sounded more like a bad romantic comedy title...

    But all kidding aside, I really like northern parts of Minnesota....the vast amounts of pine trees, small towns populated by log cabins, summer storms, thousands of lakes, bonfires...can't wait to be up there this summer.

    My original plan for last year's L.A. trip was to drive back along Highway 1, up the PCH and Oregon Coast in the Bricklin.

    The next time I'm down in Long Beach and have some extra time off, I'm going to try to drive down the Oregon Coast...

    By state law, the entire Oregon coast is public land. There are no private beaches in Oregon. Call us a bunch of commie liberals encroaching on personal freedoms, but most Oregonians recognize the natural treasures we've been given and have a long history of protecting and preserving them.

    California was once paradise, and it always makes me sad to see how over-population has wiped out so much of its natural beauty. Along the central coast from roughly Santa Barbara to Monterrey, California is still gorgeous, but it's not overflowing with people, either. The same goes for the great redwood forests and coastline north of San Francisco.

    I remember a TV show set in the early 20th century when a character, trying to get her partner to go with her to California, said there was a place so beautiful that they called it The City of Angels. You can still see those remnants in Los Angeles, but knowing how much has been lost forever is rather depressing.

    I'm not talking about public/private. Private beaches are usually cleaner anyway.

    I'm talking about trashy people showing up and littering all over the place.

    Got it. Our beaches tend to be much less crowded since none of them abut a major metropolitan area like in San Diego, Orange County and Los Angeles.

    The beaches in Oregon tend to be less crowded due to the rain, fog, clouds, wind, cold water, sharks, rocks and the fact that they are generally void of hot chicks in bikinis.

    I've actually found early fall to be the nicest time to visit the beaches in Oregon.

    Not only is our local So. Cal. private beach clean, we have a cocktail waitress, a jacuzzi, a pool, a gym, a valet to park our car and the only trash is hot slutty gold digging eye candy.

    I usually go to my office. I work by myself, and if I just want to be alone, it's easy to make the place quiet.
