The Central Oregon Coast

In Oregon, U.S. Route 101 is seldom out of sight of the Pacific Ocean, which gave me ample chances to admire the beauty and diversity of the Oregon Coast. I was amazed how much it was changing from south to north (e.g. it was getting greener) and how different it was from the Pacific Coast in California.

Central Oregon Coast:

On a side note, Anil and I drove together the full length of Hwy 101, all the way from its southern terminus in Los Angeles in California, to the northernmost point in Port Angeles in Washington. We did not do that during a single trip, but I think it is still pretty impressive taking into account that the full length of the highway is around 1550 miles (2500 km).
