Day six. As we left the Hoh Rainforest we saw a whole herd of elk. Last fall when we were at Rocky Mountain National Park we heard the elk bugling, and it was the most beautiful sound I've ever heard! I can't believe such a lovely, musical sound can be made by these animals. It's uncanny.
We travelled through Astoria, Oregon and while there we toured the Columbia River Maritime Museum. We saw a few cargo ships on the Columbia River, and I still cannot fathom how big those things are! I was staring at them and still couldn't comprehend their massive size.
The bridge to Astoria:
An old Coast Guard ship:
A behemoth cargo ship (unfortunately I couldn't get Hunter to stand in front of it for perspective):
Remntants of an old shipwreck:
We drove along the coastline and the view was breathtaking:
We reached our campsite at Cape Lookout State Park...doesn't that sounds inviting?! The campground was right on the beach. We took FJ to the beach and watched the sunset. Very romantic. :)
