We drove out to the “Yaquina Head Outstanding Natural Area” north of Newport at Agate Beach to see the lighthouse and hike a few of the trails.
The view from the Salal Hill Trail, looking west towards the lighthouse. The treeless hillside was burned periodically by the native inhabitants to attract elk and deer.
An up close of the lighthouse, the tallest in Oregon.
A decorative element with the plaque below it reading:
“TO THOSE LOST AT SEA
WITH SPECIAL AFFECTION
FOR THE FISHERMEN OF
THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST”
