We then continued down the coast, following the scenic road just by the ocean. Definitely one of the most fun drives to feel on the edge of the continent and take a look at the numerous rock formations in the ocean. We were really excited about our next stop: the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area – 50 miles of sand dunes down the coast. Following our precious guide, we decided to do the John Dellenbeck Trail and we weren’t disappointed. After a quick walk through the forest, we found ourselves in a completely new landscape. Sand, sand, sand. Mountains of sand, everywhere. And man, walking in the sand is a bit of a work out! But jumps and sprints down the dunes make it totally worth it. We even had a ‘how much sand did you get in your shoes’ competition, Steph won – but I think he cheated.
