From the Coast
Entry into Astoria is Impressive. With Astoria Bridge at the left, this riverside town which covers the
steep hill ahead, loom larger as we across the bridge over Youngs Bay from Warrenton. We drove east
under the Astoria Bridge to the 6th River Overlook to catch the Trolley.

We catch the last run of the Trolley at 6th Street Pier - Summer Trolley service ends at 7pm. Pat, Mike and
I rode Old 300 east under the Astoria Bridge to the Trolley Barn. We got a history lesson en-route. The
Conductor, after counted the money, give use a ride to our car.
The riverside town of Astoria seems to covers one huge hill. Set on the peek of Coxcomb Hill, 600 ft elevation
is the 125 ft Astoria Column. A mural of Oregon History to 1900’s wrap around the column from bottom to Top.
Because of my fear of heights, Mike Bruening climbs to the top and takes photos of
the great view of the Columbia River, Pacific Ocean, and Youngs Bay for me

Pat Mike and I end this long fun-filled day with a late dinner at Pig & Pancake. Afterward, I saw an ocean
