After the Foot Traffic Flat Marathon and the fireworks on the 4th of July in Portland, I drove back to CA along the southern Oregon Coast. The drive wended through romantic-sounding towns such as Florence, North Bend, Coos Bay (where Steve Prefontaine grew up), and Gold Beach. At least during this time of year–when the coast is not obfuscated by dense fog–views are spectacular and the weather is just warm enough to drive with the top down. This drive was perhaps the nicest coastal drive I have done thus far…
