The Oregon Dunes
North of Coos Bay is the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area, Lawrence of Arabia sand dunes which run 50 miles along the coast and stretch inland for 3 miles too. Taking a dune buggy ride in the 40,000 acres set aside for recreational vehicles, over dunes which soar to 350ft, and where elk, black bear and mountain lions are sometimes seen, is a wind-in-your-hair and heart-pumping experience.
