Side Trip Along the Superb Oregon Coast

01 July 2013 | Portland, Oregon
Alison
The coast of Oregon was on our doorstep, so we hired a car for a week to view a huge variety of marine and land wildlife. Starting with pelicans and elk in the North through to harbor seals, two grey whales and sea lions in the south. Everywhere there were thousands of sea birds, many of them having flown to the offshore islands off the coast to breed. We ambled along the beautiful coast camping in state forest campsites along the way. After reaching a few miles off the North California Coast we turned inland and wound our way through old growth conifer forests in the foothills of the Western Cascades.

At the moment it is over 90 degrees F in Portland and this heat wave is supposed to last for another week as a stationary high hovers over this part of the US. It means for us less cold temps in the mountains and hopefully no snow where we are going. Geoff is intent on having his birthday on the trail so off we go tomorrow not returning to real civilisation until 8th Aug.

Greece is in the throes of a recession, but they still have the last laugh - never far from the sun, the sea, colour, culture and bags of history. The photos document our Aegean odyssey from May to September 2011

O.K. We're mad, but we somehow prefer a home on the sea to one on dry land.

Kathmandu, Patan and Bhaktapur - the three ancient city states of the Kathmandu valley have mediaeval architectural wonders in their Durbars and old town areas - a meshing and merging of Hinduism, Buddhism and materialism

People make the Himalayas a unique place to walk through. From Hindu rice and buffalo farmers in the foothills to the Buddhist villages in the highlands so influenced by Tibetan ancestry and trade over the passes
