"Well, first I want to, before I get to my question, first I wanted to touch on what you said about the Apple watch. Yes. Just recently right across the Columbia river from me over there in the little town called the dalles. Oh yeah, another Dallas. Yeah. Apple watches, did you hear about that? No, what happened? Well, she got her foot caught in some rocks while she was out swimming, and she nearly was drowning, and she used her apple wasp called the police, the police showed up, brand new guy. He was two weeks on the job. He took off his gun belt and his boots went out there and his uniform and staved her. Wow. You don't watch. Hallelujah. That's impressive. Yeah. No kidding. Apple at the beginning of their event a couple of weeks ago. They showed a very long advertisement that just basically featured people like that who would almost died, but didn't because the Apple watch. The only thing was a little weird about it is they put them in the scene where they almost died. And so there was a young woman who had gotten a plane crash. And she's filming this in a crashed plane. It's like, I thought it must be a little traumatic for her. It's certainly dramatic. I don't know, I think apple may be overplays the drama of it. But it is the case. Having a, I feel like dick Tracy with this thing on my wrist. It doesn't do a camera, but everything else. Having a communication like that, yeah. You can look it up online. Yeah, I did. I looked up the story. Apple insider had it, yeah. Swimmers stuck in frigid Columbia river uses Apple watch to call for help. Yeah. Awesome. That was impressed. Anyway, my question was, by the way, that's one of the reasons I have an Apple watch and I got one for my mom 89. Again, we talked about it. If she falls the fall detection is going to be huge. It's going to be really valuable. Same for me. It also does something interesting for older people, gate detection, because apparently if your gate changes dramatically, that's just bad sign. Obviously. And it will also signal that. There's something going on. So I think this is a new thing. It's not new, but it's really become clear that Apple wants to be the good hands people. And we take care of our customers and you're safer. You got to make an appointment and drive two and a half hours. And you have to have you have to have some money too because this stuff is very expensive. Yeah. Anyway, my question was, we recently had our local Internet provider over to my house. For tea for coffee, come on over. Yeah. But we came over and changed out the router to a hero little white.

"Hide their bodies from each other. Second thing is they hear the sound of yahweh elohim. It was walking about in the garden at the ruach hayam at the wind of the day. There it is. There it is. It's the third translated wind. Win. Yeah. Because again, we walk in Hebrew can mean spirit, breath, or wind. That's right. And sometimes this one's translated as cool right in the cool of the day. So here I'm comparing translations. The NIV translates it as the cool of the day. Actually, that's not translating their interpreting the image. The presumption is wind refers to the temperature. That maybe this was an interesting way to talk about a certain time of day or interesting intuitive move. So it sounds nice. ESV goes their same direction and as B, they really set a precedent there. NRS feed at the time of the evening breeze. So they're saying not just. Oh, so they got the breeze in there. The wind. Yeah. But they inferred. Evening. They refer to a time. Yeah. Interesting. And King James, the cool of the day. Wow. Yeah, so the question is. For me, is when we come across this, are we supposed to see, oh, it can also just be used this other way to talk about a certain kind of weather. Or is it that we're supposed to see a link between this and genesis two and just this one? Because arguably, sometimes ruck is just literally talking about weather. And there might be wind. But in the ancient imagination that's never separated from God's life. Energy in life. So even if it's just talking about the weather, it's not just talking about the weather. The longer I've thought about this, I think it's one of these images of one of these examples of a super dense image that's capable of multiple nuances. So they're in a garden with trees. So how would they hear the sound of yahweh walking in a garden? Well, you know, wind blowing in the trees. That's actually a pretty good way to imagine it. Yeah. Also, what time of wind, especially in that part of the world, does the wind often blow? It is often in the afternoons. That's to do with the fact that it's so dang hot. Same with the Columbia river. That's when the winds come up. Exactly, yeah, in our neck of the world. So not always, but often. There's afternoon winds. The question is, is there more here? And here, I'm gonna just look at the fact that. There's the structure to this verse here. They hear the sound of yahweh him. It was walking in the garden at the windy time of day, and the hit. So there's this connection of images. There's a sound that's walking, and that sound is coordinated with wind. The reason why you're translating it was walking because it's referring to the sound, the sound was walking. Oh, I see. Let me see. God was walking. Yes, it's ambiguous. Okay. It ambiguous. So, it could be heat. Yeah. Could be. They heard the sound of yahweh lahim. And it's yahweh lahim that was walking. Or sound could be the subject of the walking, and it's the sound walking. And I think that's also an intentional too. So the point is that when the sound shows up in this apparently physical, some sort of manifestation, there's wind. So what this is laying tracks for is a really important design pattern that's going to appear. So here's just a quick nerdy thing. There's going to appear a whole repetition.

"Brain. I'm Shankar Vedantam. Think back to the last time you made a resolution and failed. Maybe the resolution was to get your finances in order or to exercise more. Maybe it was to eat healthy. You even made a list of all the reasons you should order more salads. But those reasons failed you when you smell french fries at the next table, your emotions got the better of you. Many of us see our emotions as the enemy when it comes to carrying out our resolutions. But we often forget something. Emotions can also be enormously constructive and powerful. Give it it might make sense to back up and see the big picture. For a moment. Many of us think that something makes us angry, so we feel angry. Something makes us sad. So we feel sad. Something makes us happy. So we feel happy. We think emotions are about looking back at reacting to the past. You say there's something wrong with this picture? What is it? Yeah, Emotions are not about the past. They are about the future. And what I mean by that is, if you even just think about the brain metabolically. What good it would it be to have a response that is only relevant to things that have happened before. The reason we have emotions are to help us decide what to do next. When you were feeling an emotion, it's altering the computations. Your brain is making your predictions for The best course of action. Some years ago, You started to explore an interesting idea. If emotions are a mechanism to help us navigate the future, not just in accounting system to tabulate the past. That might explain why some emotions seemed to help us do difficult things. You tell the story in your book of one of your students who would wake up early each morning. To go rowing on the Columbia River in the Pacific Northwest. What did she tell you? Yeah, This was my student Lee civilians if now professor at the University of New South Wales in Australia. And she told me you know it was very difficult to wake up before the sun rises and to go out in the cold, damp of the Pacific Northwest and to get on the Columbia River and row, But she felt pride for being accepted onto the rowing team and pride for how well our team was doing. And not wanting to let her team down. And so it was that sense of pride for the accomplishments they made each day in the anticipated pride for what was going to come next. That helped her do these difficult things that helped her get up in the morning when many of us might just want to roll over and hit the alarm for snooze, and it's because sometimes we do hard things because we think we should. But I think more often than not, we do hard things because we feel we should. Emotions are sourced a huge source of motivation. So you decided to explore how emotions might shape self control and long term decision making. You give it up volunteers the grown up version of the marshmallow test the one that used money, But this time there was a twist. You measure differences between people in terms of how much they experienced the emotion off gratitude. Was there a correlation between gratitude and people's ability to delay gratification? There was and what we found was when they were feeling grateful when they were making these decisions because they had just reflected on something that they were grateful for. It basically doubled their self control. Suddenly they weren't willing to give up $100 in a year for $17. Now it would take about $31 for them to do this. But the important thing was to show that it wasn't just that we were distracting them or wasn't anything about just feeling good. When people were feeling happy? We asked to describe something that I thought was funny and amusing. They were the same as people who were neutral. It was $17. It's what this tells us is that when you feel gratitude, it alters the computations your brain is making about how valuable.

Columbia Crest H3 Les Chevaux Red 2016 Review
"It's Dave from cheap wine finder.com again with another wine reviews. It's getting fiber that I decided to go red blend, which goes well with thought and I found a wine that delivers a lot for the price low. Do I have here? I got the Columbia Crest Horse Heaven Hills a shadow red blend 2016. The 2017 vintage is off too and they changed the label from 16 to 17 label is very dark for 16 and it's very white and light for 17s, you know the difference off. And so is French for horse Horse Heaven Hills is in the Columbia of valley of Washington office. It's east of Vancouver west of Walla Walla and like the northern banks of the Columbia River and when the first settlers got there, there's Wild Horses song. So you go nice bottles great place. And this is a red blend. That is Merlot sharath Lubbock and it's an assorted other than a regular hours, which I always thought was kind of funny while they don't know what's in there's like they don't know who knows. Another thing is it's been a no this isn't Ryan that's been aged think I found it for under $12 at Costco. It's under 10, I believe and it's been a note for 22 months French and American Oak. For wound 22 bucks. So, you know, it's winemaking is all about the details and near they don't know what the brakes were their birth don't know exactly what the time it was in Barrel. You know, Columbia compressed is a really it's a second label for Chateau Ste. Michelle out of Washington Seattle say Michelle's family wines of the biggest python Washington State in Columbia Crest has been around since the eighties. It's a second label, but there are no slouch in 2009 Dodge Reserve cabin or something on one line of the year and one spectator against every other line in the world. It was number one Columbia Crest mixed good lines and they're always on the top 100 list Best Buy off was so I was you know for me it's kind of funny cuz they didn't know what the grapes were inside other than the first really didn't know exactly. I got a clean it's not as if they're not taking care of business. Just they just don't really care about the writing it up. There wasn't much there. It was just let's play attention to the line and not worry about not what's written and it's a really, you know, it's like I said for under $12 and it's got a lot of flavor that Oak aging is something that you cannot duplicate. Inexpensive red wines have gotten really really good at give you a flavor that tastes pretty good. It tastes legit way. It gives you chocolate and vanilla gives you a lot of flavors in the one that you're looking for and there's different ways they do it. But the one thing they can't do and this has been off barrels for almost two years twenty two months around 22 months. You can't replicate that. There are something that happens to the wine after a couple of years in all the flavors of melding together as deleting the flavors from the earth. You can't replicate that you can put the flavor in but you can't replicate what time does 2-1, you know in the reviewer said if we on a 2017 is out now says the 2016 Under normal circumstances with an expensive red wine. You grab the newest one. I always got new. When you got one that's been aged for a while. But extra year doesn't hurt it off, you know, it helps, you know, they're drinking now wines. They're not really made to be put away, but that doesn't mean they can't be for a short period of time if you could take care of them and liquor store probably took took good care of them. So this is kind of learn those lines that goes, you know, it's a little bit, you know, like made like the more expensive wise just time is money. If it's you know, if it's in Georgia for two years, sometimes it might need almost 2 years of age in the bottle, you know, it's not a exact science, but that takes time and the longer it takes you to snow that one, you know money as long as it's in there and the harder it is to make an expensive one. And this is a value price line. Just the line. You should check out cuz it's not going to be the same old same old. I mean they're they're good red blends that are inexpensive or Perfectly fine, but here you got one that's from a single a VA from a top-notch producer that's got some occasion to it something that you can't replicate off with fancy science that only time can do and I think that's pretty cool. And that's it for me did like I said, we got more coming up keep it cheap and adios by

"Washington addition, it's a big deal because you have a construction project in Vancouver. That is so big that you need to know about it here because it involves the Columbia River. Here's Chris. Yeah, and if you're going to be heading down through the Portland area over the next couple of weeks, you really need to be prepared for this. The Interstate bridge consists of two matching spans the first open in 1917. The second in 1958 each carry three lanes of traffic over the Columbia River connecting Vancouver in Portland. The North bound span, which is the original one is going to be closed around the clock for nine days starting Saturday and lasting through the 20th workers need that time to replace the trainee in which raises and lowers the bridge. All traffic's going to be diverted into the south bound span. During this closure, so we're losing 50% capacity washing Department of Transportation's Tamara Green Well says, it's going to be nasty. In the morning, it will be two lanes South bound and then for the afternoon commute will be tooling North bound and one lane staff found so that we're able to sort of maximise the lanes that air open around noon. Each day, workers are going to use a large zipper truck to move the concrete jersey barriers switching the lanes. It's gonna take about 20 minutes to do thatjob lanes will be switched back overnight. This type of closure could gridlock the entire corridor between Vancouver and Portland, which is already pretty bad. Our traffic modeling shows that people continue to travel a CZ. They typically would. We could see congestion of 24 miles long and extending almost 16 hours a day and that's something you don't want to get caught over. Not be aware of, if you're going to be heading south out of our region. Down to that area. Now, If you're familiar with that Portland Vancouver area, you might think the simplest thing to do would be to jump over to the two old five bridge. It's a little bit further to the East. It's over the river, but It's not really a great option, either, because it handles a lot of traffic anyway to a five pretty backed up most of the day, So it's not really a good alternate routes. So we're encouraging folks. If you don't have to travel to maybe go in a different time. Consider using public transit. So if you plan on travelling through the Portland area during this closure, it's best to time your trip. So you hit the interstate bridge before after traditional rush hours, and be sure to have a backup plan. The challenge with something like this is we know how Typically used the corridor. What we don't know is.

Absent From Stimulus Packages: Overhauling Energy, Climate Programs
"Some countries are literally printing money to rescue their economies from the ravages of covid nineteen. The UN and some others argue that some of that money should be spent to fight climate change. The European Union has a plan to do that. The US so far does not despite the fact that this country has a tradition of overhauling our energy sector to promote economic recovery. Here's NPR's Jeff Brady. Consider President Franklin. Roosevelt's new deal a century ago, electricity may not come to mind, but a big element was building massive hydroelectric dams on the Columbia River then the government paid woody Guthrie to write songs about. Colonial. Power returning our. Law. The legacy of those dams is mixed. They forever changed the environment, but they also brought electricity to rural America during the Nineteen Twenties and Nineteen Thirties about ninety percent of the US. Farms had no electricity. Ted Case is executive director of the Oregon. Rural Electric Cooperative Association his Co. up. Members exist because the new deal brought utility, Poles and power lines down many miles of dusty Rhodes and connected homes to the grid that day was the most incredible day for a lot of families when they finally got to throw. Throw that kerosene lantern out the window which many people did decades later? President Obama was sworn into office amid an economic downturn. His stimulus plan included ninety billion dollars that helped reshape the US energy landscape. It's an investment that will double the amount of renewable energy produced over the next three years solar and wind grew quickly, and now the cheapest source of electricity in some places, but hundreds of thousands of renewable energy jobs have been lost. Scientists say carbon emissions must be reduced dramatically to avoid the worst effects of. Of Climate Change, that requires significant changes at a time. The country already is spending a lot of money about three trillion dollars on relief packages so far Julian brave noise cat is with the group data for progress. It is irresponsible from like a very basic good government perspective to not have any of that money. Go to Queen Energy and fighting climate change noise cat says money should be spent creating jobs to build retrofit houses install rooftop, solar and deploy electric vehicles. Heather reams also is concerned about climate change, but. But her politics are more conservative and market focused. If we're talking about if you'RE GONNA put taxpayer money someplace, put it where you're going to get a good return, and that is in clean energy. Reams heads citizens for responsible energy solutions. She says there are bills. In Congress. That could become stimulus programs even with an administration that shows little interest in climate change they do recognize the economic value that clean energy brings the jobs that brings particularly to a lot of red states, so I think the business certainty. Trump's if you will any kind of political challenges, another idea has the support of some conservatives and big oil companies taxing carbon dioxide emissions I. Think it's fair to say that carbon taxes are economists favorite way of addressing climate change Yona. Marinescu is an economist at the University of Pennsylvania, but she says this would be a bad time to levy new taxes. She suggest the government invest lots of money in clean energy upfront, and then Levy carbon tax to pay for it when the economy recovers, it's one idea among many the point. Is that climate? Climate Change arguably is the biggest problem humans face now and fixing. It requires sweeping solutions at a time. The US's spending lots of money. It's a sad time, but also an opportunity to do investments that perhaps we didn't have the Mo-jo to get our act together and do before. Sometimes it takes a good crisis to finally move in a whole new direction just like the new deal. Here's what's different. Though after the Great Depression and the two thousand eight recession, the country had presidents who believed in fixing the big energy problems of

"Michael thanks for being here. Thanks for having me. So you've covered very exciting topics before. Wall Street is exciting. Sports is exciting. The Department of Agriculture is not generally considered exciting. How did you decide to to turn to this? So it wouldn't have been exciting before trump. I think trump electrified all the material. So what happened. Several things at once happened. I just finished a book about Danny. Common name is diversity to Israeli psychologist who Study the way people Miss Miss Value. Risk price risk and one of their insights. Was that if you take a catastrophic risks. I mean it's like a one in a million chance of happening and and make it a one in ten thousand still very remote increase the likelihood one hundred times people don't feel it and I had this sense. When trump was elected in the way he was approaching governing that he was he was doing that across a big portfolio of risks that. I thought that the one way to think of the federal government is a manager of giant portfolio of risks many of them catastrophic and that people weren't feeling it exactly. I was doing on this in about how to write about it when he made Rick Perry the Secretary of Energy of Course Rick. Perry had said that he thought the Department of you should be eliminated when he was on stage in a debate but he couldn't remember even the name of the place and once he collided with it he realised. Oh maybe it shouldn't be eliminated because the departmental has nuclear weapons in inside of it and I thought well maybe this is the this is the way maybe actually kind of want follow it follow ric currency what it means for. Rick Perry to be running this place and then somewhere in all this. I learned that the Obama Administration partly because they're required to by law partly because Obama was a responsible person had essentially Had BEEN AT WORK. For a year to create these briefings for the whoever was gonNA roll into the federal government and run it and there was a there have been thousand thousand people across across the government who had spent the better part of a year creating these briefing books thinking about how to present the government to someone who didn't know anything about it and these briefings were supposed to happen the day after the election. I mean they're gonNa roll and that's what happened. When Obama rolled in to replace Bush and the trump people hadn't shown up at all so then I had a hook but now I do too in the hook was I'm GonNa go get the briefings. Briefings and trump people never bothered to get and kind of learn about this portfolio of risk and try to get a sense of what we should be worried about why that was the start and then you ended up covering not just the Department of Energy but also the Department of Commerce and the Department of Agriculture. You know I had a selection problem that reminded me a bit of the selection problem. I had with the big short and the big short there was a pool of kind of fifteen Wall Street guys who had seen the crisis coming or thought they'd seen it coming and made a fortune betting on the collapse of either Wall Street or the housing market and I wandered around a long time on a casting. Search figure out which ones were the best to tell the story through. Who are the other contenders? There were a lot of them. I mean they were. They were hundreds of them but they were fifteen of them and and all were willing to let me write about him. It was just who could kind of teach the reader the most important things what was the best way to dramatize this. And in this case I had actually fifteen cabinet level positions fifteen departments to choose from and I had a narrow down. I couldn't do the federal government. I wasn't gonNA keep the reader for more than a couple of hundred pages. I knew right away it was going to be three or four and I thought I had some criteria I thought one. It's gotta be something that I suspect. Most readers have no idea what it does and I just. I would just market test this. I'd be at a dinner party and say they might tell me what the Department of Commerce does and nobody had any idea that half the budget went to weather collecting weather data. You know or in the department energy most people didn't like Rick. Perry as opposed to the Treasury Department of the State Department of people have some vague idea. What does it? I wanted to be out of the public eye because I thought among other things I think. The risks are greater when public not watching the trump administration and finally. I thought they started to be very important so the Department of Education. I mean it's nothing's not important in the federal government but some of it's more important than than others so i. I spent time in most of the departments. I mean are talked to people from most departments and eliminated things along the way and then figured these are the three I wanted to do. Having said that I mourn not having written about the State Department and more not having read about the Department of the Interior. I think you could drop a writer into any one of these places and he would come away with a really. There's a wonderful stories to tell I mean. The Department of Education Is One. That's been written about a lot because of that. The high profile of the appointee to a lesser extent repairing sort of when he came in there was a flurry of attention and then kind of died away. So what is Rick Perry doing at the Department of Energy and what the Department of Energy supposed to be doing? It's a really good question what he is doing what. I dipped out of this story. I mean the last time I interviewed someone at the department injuries. Maybe six months ago and what I'm told. Is he set himself up as a kind of cheerleader ceremonial head of with the. Who isn't all that interested in the place? So you seem tweet a lot about it but we never got the briefings presumably. I know more about it than he does. Because I sat down with people had them walk me through the whole department. Maybe by now. He's accumulated some information. But what does it do? It's a vast science project what it is and part of the science project is tending to testing assembling nuclear weapons. That that's a big part of the budget. Another big part of the budget is cleaning up nuclear. Waste their sites in this country. And you wouldn't believe it. It's sort of like green type. Post-apocalyptic PLACES PAN for Washington. The Department of Defense three billion dollars a year trying to clean up the remains of the plutonium factories that that generated the atom bombs for World War. Two you ask the people in the department energy to give you an honest estimate how long it's GonNa take to to clean the place up hundred years one hundred billion dollars. I mean that's not trivial. And and what is at stake is there is a giant plume underground of of nuclear waste. That's slowly drifting towards the Columbia River which is not that far away said up on the Columbia River because they need the water to cool the it was there for a reason but if it leaches into the Columbia River. It's a catastrophe the for the Pacific northwest and it's managed in a very short term way. Things happen there. That are very alarming but does that predate trump or is it always been managed in a short term way although trump was the trigger for my story and trump is by far the most negligent manager of the federal government. We've had my lifetime Fisher probably forever. I never thought of his story. Just about trump. I thought of it. A story about the narrative we have created has poisoned or at Lea- screwed up the relationship between the society and government. That that this whole notion that the government is filled with lazy stupid. Bureaucrats who were kind of dead weight on society is a really dumb story. It's not true story. Department energy actually illustrates this. There is within the Department of Energy and his science project a seventy billion dollar loan portfolio and a few hundred million dollar venture capital fund. That is responsible for the entire. Solar power industry is responsible for Tesla. The first that were given to Tesla it is. It's it's the only place where dollars will be allocated to long term innovation. Industry doesn't do this if you she track back. Where the the innovations that led to the current American economy came from almost always it started with a government some government investment the Internet. The iphone wouldn't wouldn't exist without govern investment. When I think about the government I think of it as this. This exquisitely important exquisitely complicated machine that. We've let rust for decades telling ourselves a story that we need to basically just kick it every now and then it keep it from being too lazy and this guys come along and got sledgehammer. Trump has come along and he's getting this is getting you. He's going to do really mortal damage to it all right. So here's a short term thinking way of looking at this if you have things like nuclear cleanup. That are one hundred year. One hundred billion dollar projects is this potentially four year maybe eight year term of neglect. Kind of benign neglect. Because it's just GonNa it's all moving so slowly anyway or is he actively doing something in these departments. That is making it far worse. We have to worry. I think we have to worry a lot in. That's not me saying there's there are people who were kind of professional watchers of the federal government who are independent reps of the situation and then they're terrified for a few reasons. One is just the people who were in the federal government in the first year. The trump administration twenty percent of the top six thousand managers in the government civil service senior executive types left Biz. A hollowing out of the talent. And there's real talent there. These are not trivial. People people who were there in a lot of people federal government could be being paid a lot more money in the private sector and they've been drawn to some mission whether it's school nutrition or tending the nuclear arsenal or the weather service. They're there because they love the mission in because they know how important job is and we've mistreated those people for a long time. But now the level of mistreatment got very high and the dispersion of those people is a problem but then there are lots of things that are not so long term. I mean the trump budgets zeroed out both the loan program and the investments in the Department Energy Department of Agriculture Department. Agriculture has a three billion dollar research. Budget typically always overseen by a scientist and agricultural scientist. And if you talk to the woman who previously occupied the place Kathy Woteki a re a one a distinguished agricultural scientists who've been in government. Thirty years really knows what she's doing. She's all of his budget right. Now is one way or another being directed to research tied to climate. Change that we're to feed ourselves we're GONNA have to think differently. Be where how and where we grey sheep and cows and grow wheat and the climate change and have a big effect on the food supply trump appointed to this job right wing talk show radio host from Iowa who happened to support who knew who has no science background whatsoever named Sam Clovis now he has recently been removed from consideration. And there's nobody on his anybody in the job right now but the neglect of investment right now in the government will have consequences down the road. The bright spot is make it so bad and this is the point of the book. It make it so bad that people may wake up and we'll have a different narrative about our government.
South Dakota Senate committee rejects resolution urging Congress to rescind Wounded Knee medals. Spokane Tribe celebrates legislation to compensate tribe for losses from dam construction decades ago.

A Road Trip Along the Oregon Coast
"I'd like to welcome Jessica Baker from Boundless Bakers Dot Com. Who's come to talk to about the Oregon Coast Jessica? Welcome to the show. Thanks Chris Thank you for having me and you are currently coming to us from Orlando. What were you doing out on the Oregon coast and the trip that we're gonNA talk about well. My family and I have been traveling in a RV for the past thirteen months so we have seen quite a bit of the country and probably our favourite stop so far where we spent twelve weeks was the Oregon coast this past spring. And we've now we're in Florida and you see your family. I understand that to be your husband to kids three and five and three cats at its correct so we have a thirty five foot trailer just full of love of of of little people. Lots of cats and That's that's our family. Excellent in why should we go to the Oregon coast? Well probably the number one reason to go to the Oregon Coast is. It is absolutely gorgeous. Like I said we've been traveling the US and up into Canada for the past thirteen months and the Oregon coast is probably the one of the most unique and probably the most beautiful areas on that. We've seen this far. So just the natural beauty of it. It truly is where the Where the forest meets the the sea and between the the lush green forests and the rocky rugged coastline is just absolutely gorgeous. And when we say we're the forest meets the C are we using a slogan from tourism? That really sounded like someone had thoughts. I didn't know that is like I don't know if I had heard that somewhere. I should call them and we can make that their official their social model excellent. What were you gonNA start us long to start us in Northern Oregon? So what I thought we would do as we could break it up. I'm kind of in a couple of different sections along the coast and talk about What to do each area thinks see in that sort of stuff but I figured we would start at the top and northern Oregon Group so for California like me. Just listen to what you say and put everything in reverse. I got exactly. We actually came from California so we did it in reverse but I figured we'd just start from the top for the for this a story. Yeah absolutely So as I said we. Rv So when we were in northern Oregon we stayed at a RV campground in seaside Oregon. Which is it is basically just west of Portland. I'm it's where a lot of Local Portland Portland Liens. I believe they where they go out to the coast. It's a beautiful little. Seaside town on a story is just an hour. North of seaside in Asturias where the Columbia river the mouth of the Colombia River. You'RE A little further. South of that is correct yet Yes the Columbia River and flows into the sea there. That's where Lewis and Clark. National Historical Park is so you can actually visit for platts it is where Lewis and Clark you know. That was kind of like their base when they were in the area. It's up there near story. A- another thing we loved about the story area is the story of tower So it's this. I don't know exactly how tall it is. But it's this historical tower that sits atop one of the hills in hysteria. You can actually climb the steps to it and they they sell little would in airplanes there for dollar and you can As you're as you're taking in the views like the magnificent views of the city and the the river in the C. You can actually throw your little airplanes off and watch them kind of float down into the nearby forest and it's it's really cool. My kids absolutely loved it. As did I perfect for a three three year. Old a four year old and a nine year old for me. Yeah No I. I enjoyed it just as much as they did So yeah that was kind of That was probably one of the would've are highlights in the story was was the tower and then also kind of Getting some of the history of Lewis and Clark around the area so definitely definitely all. We're checking out. I guess the idea between behind it being a paper airplane is that it's biodegr- Iraq yet. Absolutely because chances are you're never going to see it again unless it happens to float straight down but Yeah we we definitely did not get back. Yeah so then kind of moving a little bit further south as I said. We stayed in seaside Oregon Kind of some of the top attractions that we enjoyed in that area First one was a state park a state park so beautiful lots of history Lewis and Clark. Actually we're in that area as well so there's a couple of historical attractions there. We did a wonderful hike. There the climate's a loop trail. I'm it's a couple believe it was about two two and a half miles long. It actually takes you up so it is quite a bit of elevation change but the views from the top are Gorgeous you can actually see quite a few miles out into the sea where you can actually take a look at the. Tillamook rock lighthouse which is about a mile mile and a half off the coast. There's no longer in use this tiny little rock with time. He little lighthouse on it and you get a great view of it from the top of that trail so definitely an area. I would suggest checking out for again. The beaches and The hiking trails south of state park is where can beaches Cana- beach is probably one of the better known areas of on the Oregon coast. It's I think most known in terms of if you've seen pictures of the Oregon coast this is probably what you've seen pictures. Chances Are you're looking at a picture of Haystack Rock Which is a two hundred and thirty five foot sea stack and that is just off the coast of of the beach there. When the tide's out you can actually get pretty pretty close to it. They don't really encourage climbing on it But you can get get pretty close to it. When the tide's out so beautiful picturesque little little town and then yeah just getting up close and personal with Haystack. Rock is kind of one of those experiences. You WanNa. You WanNa have. When when you're in that area continuing on South? I'm just south of Ken. Beach we really enjoyed. I'm an area. It's called hug point state recreation site. I'm against kind of like a state park a protected area on but what it is is it's it's a recreation site right on the coast and it's actually a beach area and the beach is only accessible at low tide so I highly emphasize making sure you check the tides if you want to go there because there's no there's nothing to see when the type in so definitely check the tide's head outright low tide so you are able to get as much time as possible so high point so what it is is an back in the Lewis and Clark days be stage coaches before there was a road there on the stage. Coaches would actually drive along this area only at low tide and they'd kind of have to hug this point in order to get around this rocky point on the coast and hence why it's called hug point and it's really cool because you can actually see the wheel. Ruts that have been carved into the rock from the stage coaches that used to travel super neat. What else is cool about this Recreation site are. There's a couple waterfalls little waterfalls that you can kinda climbing around the rocks and checkout huns of tide pooling. So I know my kids love. The titles of the Oregon Coast as deny area has some great tide pools. There's actually pools that form within the wheel. Arrives from the stage coaches which is pretty neat Lots of little sea caves to explore. So again you don't want to be stuck in their tide's coming in so Another reason to make sure you have I on the tides and 'cause he's these little caves or super cold explorer lots of little creatures in there and and Super. Funnier it to to check out so definitely recommend going there
Oregon's Ghost Town That Fell Into The Sea
"Hidden history. About a town that washed into the ocean between Oregon's against Tillamook Bay and the sea. There's a narrow sandy peninsula or one hundred years ago a town stood and not just any town one of the biggest biggest towns on the Oregon coast with a municipal swimming pool. Half the length of a football field warm salt water washed in how to serve generator. The reason reason it's gone today the entire town because the residents paid to build a jetty to make their steamship journey smoother. The Jetty Changed Ocean. Concurrence the ocean washed away the town the residents had paid for their own destruction. Bay Ocean got it started in nineteen six when a real estate developer named T. B. Potter. Got Hold of it and plotted the town potter. Thought big over the next few years she sold off sixteen hundred hundred lots and built a large hotel a dance hall and that's Swimming Pool. I talked about a mammoth structure right by the beach. So Potter thought big. But his actual execution was more of mid-size. He promptly installed telephone network in Bay Ocean which worked great for local calls across town. The wasn't linked to the outside world. Getting fresh water was a hassle to potter build a pipeline but didn't put a booster pump on it. So the water pressure was Ashley Solo. That sometimes water would not reach some of the lots. He also installed streets made of concrete rather than dirt or sand. But it didn't matter much. No road was built to the mainland until the nineteen twenty s so most residents didn't bother with cars. Most folks arrived on Potter stinks shop the SS badge which made a three day journey from the town of Portland and a three day. Stay the steamer trip was terrifying find ordeal sometimes though of course it would have to cross the Columbia River Bar up at the bars dangers and they are legendary legendary. This last could be more scary than the bar. Crossing which at least could be kept reasonably smooth by not crossing when the tide was coming in residents started clamoring for protective jetty. The Army Corps of Engineers studied the place told them they needed to jetties one on each side at the mouth of the bay and it would cost two point. Two million dollars half of which would have to come from local residents. The residents couldn't afford to do that so they proposed a single angle jetty. A little over eight hundred thousand later it was done and they ocean soon. To be ex. Homeowners paid half each household had ponied up roughly four hundred fifty dollars which in nineteen seventeen was enough to buy one and a half brand new Ford model ts and for a while things. Things were great. The steamship pride was much more pleasant without coming across the open ocean but then something odd started started happening. Baoshan's Broad Sandy. Beach started getting a little less broad than it started getting a lot. Less broad finally in nineteen thirty two waves chiefs from a massive storm crossed the beach and destroyed the massive seaside swimming all from there got worse and worse. The hotel started falling room and by room into the sea. Each one of the seat got further in by nineteen. Thirty eight fifty. Nine homes were gone finally in the early early fifties the C. breached the spit and brushed into Tillamook Bay turning Baosheng into an island instantly. Multimillion Dollar Oyster. Fishery was ruined a thousand acres of oyster beds buried in sand salinity in the base surge. The estuary fisheries started to collapse. The government's sprang into action building. Rip Raps seawall across the gap to keep the sea out some time after that. In the early nineteen seventy second jetty. Jetty was added it solve the problem with the currents and the sand started building itself. Backup on the spit but it was too late for bay ocean by then the entire entire town was
