In the summer of 2018, my wife and I drove down the spectacular Oregon coast in our 2001 VW Vanagon. We camped in various campsites and enjoyed the clean air, good weather, beautiful scenery and friendship of other campers. We spent our days hiking along the coast and through the woods and in the evenings, made dinner at our campsite, eating smores by the fire and spending quality time together. In Southern Oregon, we camped at Sunset Bay State Park, just across the road from the beach. The following day, we hiked from Sunset Bay to Cape Arago, a fairly easy eight and a half mile walk that took us through the gorgeous gardens in Shore Acres State Park to the sea lions at Cape Arago, with plenty of photo ops along the way.
