Monday, July 3, 2017, in Lincoln City, Oregon. We started off with a hike over at Drift Creek Falls Tr. The drive was on the usual thing we have seen on this trip very curvy and plus it was a one lane road at times. We got there and there was no parking whatsoever, we found a spot off the side of the road almost in a dip. The hike cost $5 dollars which we had to tag our car.
The hike was about 1.5 miles, and the bridge was 1.25 miles away it was a hike. I mean it was a hike. It was 1.5 miles back to the parking lot for a total of 3 miles. It was a great hike and a good workout. Was it worth it? I think it was as it was a great view of our world we have and we need to enjoy.

Airplanes and more
Then we went over to Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum which was an awesome thing to visit. The Spruce Goose was there and that was a great big airplane. The story behind that airplane is an amazing one. Howard Hughes had a dream and that dream was to build a lot of sea planes. But, that dream never was realized. Now back to the Space Museum. There were a lot of different types of aircraft there.
