Oregon's beautiful skies, part two

During my visit this month with my friend Maryann in the US state of Oregon, I saw skies of many colors, and chose an assortment of blue ones to share here today. But don't believe everything you see, it can rain there, and often does.



That isn't land on the horizon, those are clouds. Once you're past the points of land jutting out from the mainland, you won't see land again until you see Japan.

Beautiful skies Kay, it is unusual to see so much of the sky in Oregon. You are really making me miss the coast, we need to plan a trip over that way.

I'm glad you told us those were clouds because I thought it was land, too. What a beautiful place!

Just beautiful! The ocean stretching all the way to Japan - what a fantastic feeling it must be to stand at the edge and imagine . . .

The shoreline is so ruggedly beautiful - so different from the gentle shore edging the Gulf of Mexico. Still, I would love to see it one day. (Until then, I'll have to content myself with your lovely photos :)

When we used to fly up and down the coast between LA and BC, we sometimes stopped at Lakeside State Airport. It is just a grass strip, but you could camp there and if you wanted, walk to the dunes. - Margy
