A couple of my favorite hikes and spots for truly experiencing the rugged coast of S. Oregon, my favorite stretch of Pacific coast. Ever.
Minneapolis has one of the best park systems in the nation, and the 53 foot Minnehaha Falls at the center of Minnehaha Park was the perfect outdoor excursion during our trip to the city. The falls will freeze over in cold weather creating a dramatic ice cave to explore, which makes it even cooler to visit in the winter!
Coral Pink Sand Dunes is a small state park off the beaten path that is worth staying a night, or more if you have any dune toys like buggies, motor bikes, or ATVs. The campground had the nicest facilities of any park I've stayed at, and the pink dunes were impressive to see in the middle of the desert.
