A Highway of Sand

11″ x 14″

Acrylic on paper, framed

The Oregon Coast Trail follows the rugged coastline for 382 miles. It was only after 1936 that Highway 101 was completed in Oregon. Before than people on the coast had a long journey ahead by road, going inland, or waiting for dirt roads to be passable in the summer. The quicker way was drive on the sand. Here, near Hug Point, the old tire ruts are still slightly visible in the rocks.
