Trees and forest great. But lots of rain took away many opportunities for great photos. Get off US 101 and take the coastal road down to and through Oceanside. It is wonderful and has great rain forests like ambience.

You have to take the Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad if its running the days you are there. Its a short 1 hour trip along the coast but fun. We saw bald eagles high in the trees on our trip along with lots of shore birds. Very natural.

When we originally looked into taking a trip on the railroad I was under the impression that it left Garibaldi and went up to Wheeler. It doesn't, it goes from Garibaldi to Rockaway Beach which is 4 miles down the road. For $16.00 a person this is ridiculous! Been there, done that, ain't doin it again.

Went on the final dinner train for 2012. Been in Oregon on vacation for the last nine days. Last Saturday night did the Mt. Hood dinner train. All in all a nice trip and very good food and service.The Oregon Scenic dinner train really has its act together. The rail equipment is mostly 1950's era, the dinner was very good (I had the prime rib and the wife had the pork loin) the service was first class. Do yourself a favor and take this train in 2013.

Wonderful ride along the coast from Garibaldi to Rockaway. Had just enough time to check out a local store and purchase an ice cream cone. recommend for all ages.
