The two RV Gypsies in Florence, Oregon
Cape Perpetua Scenic Area - May 12, 2009

The 2700-acre wonderland in the Siuslaw National Forest has awe-inspiring views, crashing surf, tide pools, old-growth forest, and 26 miles of interconnected looping trails. There is a visitor center with RV parking, exhibits, gifts and a theater. Recreation pass required for all areas. (The two RV Gypsies have a senior pass to get in all National Parks, and that saves them a lot of money).

Cape Perpetua was a 2,000+ acre source of fish and game for early Native Americans, home to European settlers, and a military outpost.

TIDE POOLS

the tide pools
Twice a day, as tides pulse over craggy rocks, life in the tide pools adjusts to new conditions. Plants and animals are pounded by the surf, submerged in saltwater, or exposed to drying sun and wind. It seems like a harsh place to live! Yet, the intertidal life zones are among the most biologically diverse areas in the world.
