Oregon Coast Backpacking.

Just got back from a great backpacking trip with Randall. We went from Bandon to Port Orford, Oregon along the Pacific Coast Trail. We were lucky enough to enjoy perfect weather and fantastic scenery. Here are some photos (and even captions) from the trip. I can't wait for trip #3, R.K.
