Bay Center to the Oregon Border

Bay Center to the Oregon Border Professional Review and Guide

"The journey through Washington ends at the Columbia River, just a few miles inland from its turbulent terminus at the Pacific Ocean. This scenic area is rich in history. Native Americans lived and fished here for thousands of years before European explorer Captain Robert Gray charted the location of the river mouth in 1792. In 1805, Lewis and Clark ended their long western trek to the Pacific Ocean on the south side of the river near Astoria and wintered a few miles inland from the ocean.

The ride from Bush Pioneer County Park to Oregon is an easy one, leaving plenty of time for exploring. Along the way you will pass the Willapa National Wildlife Refuge, inhabited by migrating ducks and geese in the spring and fall, and a host of shorebirds year round. Two blinds for viewing and photographing the birds are situated near US 101 at the refuge headquarters. The next point of interest is the Long Beach Peninsula. Its most visible attractions are tourist oriented: “World’s Longest Driving Beach,” innumerable restaurants, motels, and amusement centers."
