Stop # 10 on our Roadtrippers map was the Jessie M. Honeyman Memorial State Park where we found the largest dunes in the western USA.
They were, well, impressive!
We hung out there and hiked up and down a few dunes for a couple of hours and it was the most work I’ve done in a long time! hahaha I was so tired afterward from pushing sand. It was great!
And finally here is a photo dump of the dunes!
|The Dunes gave us our third rainbow in three days!|
|The view down from the top of the first dune we climbed. Before mum and I parted ways. She took a lower route while I hacked bushes to climb the biggest one in sight!|
Views from the top.
|It was interesting to see how the wind would carve big grooves into the dunes at different intervals.|
|And of course the ever present ocean!|
Next we headed to Coos Bay’s Walmart for the night. Just down the street we found a local pub Gooney’s Sports Bar just down the street. It was the classic the music stops and everybody looks at you when you walk in but it took mere minutes before we were at home and having a great time until the wee hour of 9pm before we wandered home and I tried to get us lost but really just took the long way around.
Next is the trek to Crescent City and the redwood forest.
