We’ve been seeing gas prices around the country drop the last month or so while we continued to pay the higher prices out here. But today we see evidence of the lower prices here too! So before we left town we filled up the Jeep and the RV.
Moving south along Pacific Coast Hwy 101 for about 54 miles we are now in Cape Blanco State Park. There are only a few other people here and we had many campsites to pick from. We found a nice long level spot and moved in. Although it did not rain very much today it is still overcast and wet.
The campground will remain open all winter, but the nearby Cape Blanco Lighthouse will close for the season tomorrow. So as soon as we paid for our campsite we drove out to see the lighthouse and caught the last tour of today. Cape Blanco is the westernmost point in the state of Oregon and the lighthouse is the southernmost lighthouse in the state. The lighthouse hosts explained some of the history and took us up to the top.
