Port Orford - Oregon Coast

From 7/17/2013 to 8/2/2013, I took a road trip from the SF Bay Area to Vancouver, BC, Canada. Half of the trip was spent driving up the west coast. On my trip, I visited many famous places such as Seattle, Butchart Gardens, Mount Rainier, and much more. Obviously I got many coastal shots and many places that isn't as famous. The reason I am posting it now is because the high amount of photos I took equaled a high amount of processing time. I took a bit over 2000 photos on the trip. After stitching the panoramas, compositing the HDRs, and picking out photos from the repeats, I have a bit over 1000 photos to show you guys. The photos will be split into parts. I will link you to the previous and next parts on each post just like I did with my Death Valley National Park photos and my Yellowstone/Grand Teton National Park photos. Hope you enjoy viewing this chain of posts!

Full Resolution Photos and Prints: If you want to see full resolution photos or buy prints of any of the photos you see, they are up on my portfolio for viewing. To view my best Oregon photos from this trip, use this link. To view all of my day 3 photos, use this link.

Today I continue my trip north along the Oregon Coast. Photos from today are from Port Orford, Oregon and includes scenery on the road and photos from Battle Rock City Park.

 Here is a photo from the Prehistoric Gardens in Port Orford, Oregon. I didn't go into the park this time and shot this photo from the parking lot. When I was a kid, my family and I also took a trip up driving along the coast. Back then, our destination was Seattle, WA not Vancouver, BC. Back then, I did take a trip into the gardens. I still remember it. It was pretty fun when I was little, but the park is more geared towards little kids. That is the reason I didn't go in this time, plus we were kind of in a hurry driving up the coast on this trip!

Always shoot a photo of the sign where you take your photos from so you don't forget where you shot them!
