Zigzag Dunes

Sand Dunes, Carl G. Washburne State Park, Oregon  © Doug Hickok

Rows of transverse sand dunes zigzag across the beach at one of Oregon's many outstanding wild and scenic state parks. In the distance is the 
prominence of Heceta Head, topped by a bank of low hanging coastal fog. This headland was named after a Spanish adventurer who sailed this region in the late 1700's. 
If you're interested in exploring an adventure of your own, a pair of yurts (Mongolian-style tents) are available year round in this state park, offering a truly unique camping experience.
With that said, here's to a fun and adventuresome weekend!
