THE Trip, THE Encore' :: Of Sun, Sand and Bridges, Oregon Dunes area of Oregon

Day trip from June 6, 2013.  We are NOT in Oregon today.

On June 6th, Man and I wandered around the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area.  The sun was abundant, the skies blue, the sand dunes and bridges beautiful.

The Conde McCullough Memorial Bridge.  It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.  Per the WIkipedia page, the bridge was finished in 1936, having a 793-foot main span with 145 feet of vertical clearance.  The bridge was damaged in December of 1986 when the Swedish ship, the Elgaren, struck the bottom of the center span.

Oregon dunes, seem to be swallowing the pines.

Walk the dunes via boardwalk.

You can ride here, OHV heaven.  Camping too.

Beach, sandy beach as far as my eyes can see.

Oregon is known for bridges, Sony Too clicks away - - 

McCullough Memorial Bridge, once again, as we are going back south towards camp.

We also did a tour of the Umpqua Lighthouse.  Coming next - -
