Ramblers Club

Last Thursday, March 13th the Newport Ramblers Walking Club was off to Lincoln City, Oregon and a long trek on the beach.

Our walk, started at D River (First photo, below, which is the shortest river in the world) and, the idea was to walk a distance north... returning the same way, for a walk of five to six miles total.

However, my wife and I cut it short at the half point and, returned on Highway 101 to our car instead of walking back on the beach.

On the way back from Lincoln City, to our home in Newport, we stopped at the Salishan Spa and Golf Resort (About 7 miles south of Lincoln City) and, took yet another walk that follows the south side of Siletz Bay and parallels the golf course.

A very different type of a walk in that it was more of a nature walk than the beach...not that the beach can't be. To our surprise, we had the privilege of observing a Blue Heron close up and personal. It was so still, that at first we thought it was a decoy. It was not!

The Salishan Trail is short in itself but, can be extended into a 5 mile hike if you continue onto the beach and the Siletz Spit to the right.

I will go out on a limb and say that the Salishan Nature Trail is a must walk for walkers and birders!


Most of my photography can be purchased through “Fotomoto” (a trusted site) in many different formats and price ranges. Just click one of the links below each photo to see all the options!
