March 6-13 ~ Sunday visit to Cape Blanco Park

Mvc-876x.jpg (66201 bytes)Tuesday, 03-13-2001 ~ Overcast skies this morning. We continue our visit to Cape Blanco Park with a stop at Cape Blanco Beach. Cape Blanco Beach is located at the south side of the park and headland (click here to visit the Cape Blanco Park page from the Oregon State Park website). The pic on the right show a portrait view looking north towards the Cape from the beach access trail. The photos below start with a wide angle view of the beach, headland, and bluff on the right. The middle image is a view looking south towards Port Orford (Humbug Mountain is seen in the distance). The last photo below shows the cape as seen from the beach.

The photos below start with a large multi-limbed stump with headland in the distance (click here to see a past pics feature with more pics of this strange stump). Next is our pups enjoying Cape Blanco's hard-packed and level sand beach. The final picture has Norma and dogs exploring some driftwood below the sand bluffs.

The photos below start with a view of the south Headland.  The middle image shows the central headland with it's

Our pic of the day above features the Cape Blanco Lighthouse with it's Information Center below. I caught the lighted lenses just as it was rotating towards me. This pic makes a great desktop wallpaper! I took a screen capture of my computer's desktop to illustrate how yours can look.

Our final set of images starts with a zoomed view of the Sixes River outlet seen in the photos above. The next two pics feature the historic Cape Blanco Lighthouse (the first lighthouse constructed in Oregon and home of the first woman light keeper). Our last image has a guy with his remote control glider heading off to the Cape Blanco cliff. The ever-present headland wind makes this a popular spot for glider enthusiast.

Mvc-229x.jpg (82149 bytes)Tuesday, 03-06-2001 ~ Beautiful weather today! We took a late afternoon walk on Paradise Point and Agate Beach yesterday. The weather was perfect, sunny and warm with light wind. Unfortunately I didn't have my camera on me, so this first set of pics are from the Paradise Point parking area taken after our walk was over. The first image on the left shows the parking area and view looking south towards Agate Beach. The photos below start with a wide angle view of Paradise Point beach. Next is a zoomed view of Agate Beach with the Port Orford Heads in the background. The last image below shows the view looking north with the Cape Blanco headland barely seen in the distance.

This next few sets of photos are from our Sunday, February 25 visit to Cape Blanco State Park. We start with a couple of happy pups waiting to take off to the beach. We stopped at a field on the road leading to the park and took the next two photos of some sheep and their new babies.
