Oregon Coast Highway

Posted by
Eric Cousineau (Sherwood Park, Canada) on 15 August 2010 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

As we start down the Oregon coast, the sea is a constant draw. The Pacific Coast Highway is considered to be one of America's most famous highways (probably taking a not so close second to Route 66). Stretching from the southern tip of Baja California to the top of the Olympic peninsula, the highway is approximately 2500 miles in length.

I don't think of myself as a role model. I do try to live in a compassionate, considerate and positive way. The only advice I can offer is to find what you love to do, find the joy in it, and express yourself through your passion.
