A magical drive through a variety of coastal vegetation, beautiful and hidden farms and open ranges with Elk. There is old growth forest even along the side of the road as you proceed.

Just 9 miles out of Yachats, OR is a small area with an old refurbished covered bridge. It is a small spot, but gorgeous all around. Worth the 15 minute drive.

2nd time I have been here and well worth the trip. Just when you think you've gone too far down an old dirt road, you find it in such a beautiful setting. Worth the time and effort!

The covered bridge lost it's character when it was re-built. The vegetation that is shown in this image is gone. I've done several plein air paintings here before the old bridge was demolished. As a side note: it's weird ...the property on the other side...More
