Pacific Northwest Coast and Waterfalls

Eighteen days travelling the Pacific Northwest Coast and Waterfalls in June 2016 and only two rainy days. Who would have expected that in this area known for rain and fog! Planning for this trip started twelve months earlier when a friend and I discovered we were going to the Palouse at nearly the same time. We made plans then to explore the coasts of Oregon and Washington together and preparations began. After a flight into to Portland Oregon, and a side excursion to Silver Falls State Park, we traveled to our southern-most location in Bandon, Oregon. Each leg of the trip involved 2 to 4 nights in one location, then moving north the next stop. Ultimately we arrived at Olympic National Park and the most northerly point of the contiguous US, before looping a bit east and south to the Columbia River Gorge in Oregon. This gallery is still a work in progress but will eventually contain just “the best” of my images with an effort to keep this gallery small and placed in chronological order. There will be a link at the bottom to a second gallery of images from the same trip that may not be my favorites but are still worthy of a look. Thank you for your time!
