On the 6th we got up early and headed WEST! Our first stop was Astoria. Bryce was so excited since Astoria was the filming location of the Goonies.  So we started in Astoria and headed south down the Oregon coast.  I was so excited to finally see the Pacific Ocean!  It is much colder than the Atlantic and much more rocky.  It was pretty foggy in the morning which was a little disappointing but typical weather for the area.  It eventually cleared up so we could see out into the ocean.  My feet finally touched the water in Cannon Beach. It was glorious :)

We drove down the coast until we his Newport and then began our long journey back east.  Our goal was to make it to Crater Lake National Park. Some how we made it right before sunset.  It was amazing!  We watched the beautiful sunset from different spots around the lake.  It was a great experience since we were pretty much the only people in the park.  Crater lake is at a very high elevation so it was freezing. We had orignally wanted to camp but it was much to cold for that.  So we stayed in a nice roach motel in Klamath Falls. We caught up on the sad Michael Jackson news and then hit the sac. We had to rest up for the 11 hour drive in the morning!
