We’ve been here before, but I never tire of Cape Arago.
It’s situated along the coast south of where Coos Bay opens into the ocean.
Getting to it can be seriously un-inspiring. Driving up through the town of Coos Bay, you’re surrounded by industrial developments that have not aged well. Things seem to be holding together, but just barely.
They certainly have not made the most of this massive bay that forms a horseshoe around the city. We haven’t explored it thoroughly, so we might have missed some high points…but we’re not inspired to explore it much more!
However, the coastline south from the bay outlet offers enough to almost offset everything else!
On this day’s trip, we ran up to the Cape from Bandon in time to catch a few brief moments between rain squalls near sunset.
