While snow itself isn’t terribly rare here on the coast, it is rare when we get so much and it blankets the beaches as well! Taking advantage of the unique scene, one of my friends and I decided to hit up the Yaquina Head Lighthouse and then took a quick trip to Otter Rock.
Of course it was cold given the conditions, but the walk into the Lighthouse area was *extremely* cold with the wind. I was wearing 2 pairs of pants, 2 shirts, a fleece and my winter jacket with the liner, a nice warm fleece beanie cap, insulated gloves and a neck/face warmer and it was still barely enough in the windy spots. Once we got down onto the beach level, it wasn’t to bad and about what you’d expect.
It was definitely worth it though for some unique looks to this popular spot. Check out the pictures below and let me know what you think! Be sure to click the images to see them in a larger view.
