At the last stretch of last year trip and near Dead Valley California we meet Sam and Chris that happened to be from Coquille Oregon.
As they were on a site next to us it was not to long before it was clear that we will meet again in 2016 and surly enough and after exchanging many e-mails we meet in Visalia CA ,them with their 13 years old grandson and us with our 12 years old granddaughter.
We spent a week together visiting and hiking in Kings and Sequoia N.P having to know each other and enjoying ourselves including the two youngsters .
The week past fast and they had to head home while we continued our trip .
Zohar flew back home in August and we made our way North towards Oregon to meet Sam and Chris again.
Mean time Rod & Ruth from Arizona joined us with their 5W as they do every summer for the last 4 years and all the four of us "landed" in Sam's & Chris back yard near Coos Bay.
It was a great reunion meeting up with them and their grandson again, they showed us the gems around the area and sometimes joined us for the day.
The coast line ,the small villages, marinas and the beaches are just beautiful in this part of the country even if the weather in late August felt like Autumn sometimes.
We took some day trips along the Oregon Coast line North till Reedsport and South till Port Orford and maybe I am repeating myself but the beaches, small ports,lihthouses ,the rock formation, the birds and the vast nature is like taken from a picture.
Stop anywhere along the Coast and it will make you say Wow, it is a mixture of colorful pure nature beauty with endless sand beaches ,waves ,rocks and clean air.
I am speachless while standing and enjoying these pictures scenes so I will let the the imiges caught by my camera to “speak”.
An hour drive from Coos Bay driving along the scenic Hwy 241 there are 2 waterfalls , at the end of August they are not in full blast but still very rewarding .
There are some works in progress and it is not possible to park at the trailhead what adds another mile each way to the hike .
The hike to both falls start from the same T.H but then the trail splits to one waterfall going left and the other right.
The trail is mostly shady and along the creek with running water ,the trees are covered with moth and there is green vegetation all the way what makes the hike very pleasant .
