I’ve always wanted to check out this seaside town, ever since JZ told me about a bike trip she took that went across this massive bridge:CIMG2116_thumb

Astoria is on the northwesternmost tip of Oregon, where the Columbia River meets the sea.


There’s a column on top of a hill that has some great views, although it was pretty windy.


Bald eagle! (and seagull)


We also checked out the maritime museum (surprisingly interesting!), Fort George Brewery, and walked along this path to where an old fish cannery used to be.  I went for a long run (10k training!) on the same path one morning.2013_F_DSCN2670_thumb

We stayed in this adorable B&B, in the room above the garage on the right.  The breakfasts were delicious and the rooms very comfortable.2013_F_DSCN2673_thumb

This was about as far to the northwest in Oregon that you can get.2013_G_0263_thumb

This was a really fun restaurant right on the river.  After dinner we went to an old silent movie that had been re-scored and was accompanied by live music.  It was pretty good!CIMG2128_thumb

On the way back south we took the 101, so I have now been on every inch (by bike or by car) of Oregon’s 101.  I wanted my parents to see Haystack Rock at Cannon Beach.2013_G_0270_thumb

Astoria was great – I wish it had been a little warmer, but we lucked out and never got rained on when we were out and about.
