    Got a chance to visit the wreck at sunset the other night.

    "A landmark of the North Oregon Coast, the ghost-like Peter Iredale Shipwreck ran ashore on Clatsop Spit, south of the Columbia River channel on October 25, 1906. Located within Fort Stevens State Park, the wreckage is considered one of the most accessible and long-lasting in the world." - https://oregondiscovery.com/peter-iredale-shipwreck

    The 2019/20 Snowbird trip continues with a stop at Fort Stevens State Park on the mouth of the mighty Columbia River.

    In this video, I visit the famous Astoria Column and show you around Fort Stevens State Park.

    We visited the Astoria area a few years ago. Enchanting. Our kids, of course now adults, always loved watching the movie"the Goonies" and much of it was filmed there in Astoria. Great Maritime Museum as well. And if you like salmon and crab you can eat till your full.

    Great video Ray. We stayed in Fort Stevens on Memorial Day weekend and extended to ten days 2019. Love going there. The big bridge you came across from Washington to Oregon, I have pretty fond memories of. I first visited Astoria in 1964 with a bunch high school friends. The bridge didn't exist then. We took the Astoria–Megler ferry across from Astoria to Washington

    That must have been a dicey crossing at times of bad weather. :)

    I imagine you had to know when to stay home in the old days. Here's a picture of the bridge being built.
