Oregon Coast 2: Florence

Oregon Coast SP17-65

Florence is a coastal town situated on the Siuslaw River. It is situated on the north end of Oregon Dunes Recreation Area. It is about ten miles south of the Oregon Coast’s most famous lighthouse, Heceta Head Lighthouse.

Most of the images from the Florence area were taken on a spring morning along the Siuslaw River:

And here’s a couple of shots of the Heceta Head Lighthouse. I have driven by this lighthouse half a dozen times, and every time it’s been cloudy, so this is all I’ve been able to get:
