Crissey Field State Recreation Area

Crissey Fields lies south of Brookings along the Winchuck River.  It is also the site of a visitor’s center. Unfortunately, it was closed when we were there.  We wandered to the beach beyond the visitor center and the amount of driftwood was shocking.  It was so difficult to meander around the massive pieces of wood that we soon gave up and headed for a small woods which we discovered headed back to the parking area.  It was a dreary, overcast day so we weren’t too unhappy to be on our way back to Bandon to a few areas we had missed the first time around.

Far end of the park not quite as inundated with driftwood.
We walked through this woody area along the path returning to the parking area.

A field of pink flowers, as we stepped out of the woods.

We returned to Bandon for the night, as we weren’t able to book a hotel in Brookings. We stopped at  several scenic beaches along the way.

Next post is Face Rock and the Coquille River Lighthouse

    1. Yes, Lisa. I am still writing about the Oregon Coast. I have been so busy tutoring, not much time for
      writing my blog. Guess I will finish in a few weeks.


  1. Beautiful shots of the driftwood! It’s amazing how the ocean can move such huge pieces.
