A Trip To An Oregon Shipwreck

While on a family trip to Oregon, we took a trip to the Coast to see the famous Peter Iredale shipwreck.  I remember seeing it, as a kid.  So, I was really interested to find out what it looks like after forty years.

On our way to the coast, we stopped off at the Jewell Meadows Elk Sanctuary.  The boys had a blast seeing all the big, antlered bull elk.

While at the elk sanctuary I noticed this super tiny mushroom, growing on a mossy tree.  The mushroom cap was approximately 2 mm wide.

What a rarity to have a sunny day on the Oregon Coast.  Here is a view to the south.

Here is a perspective picture to show just how big this ship was.
