We did get one sunny day though when we hiked to the top of Triangulation Peak:

Later in the week, we headed south to the city of Bandon, OR. Located along the coast, it is home to some of the most spectacular sea stacks in the state. One good thing about cloudy, rainy days is that they make for great black and white photos!

Tired of dodging raindrops, we decided to head indoors to check out the carousel museum in Albany, OR. Volunteers in the city hand-carve and paint all the (very detailed) animals that are going to be a part of the massive ride soon to be built in the area. VERY impressive.

And what good would a trip to Oregon be without checking out some of our amazing wines and vineyards?! We took a trip up to the northern part of the valley and did some wine tasting at a few of the many wineries that I've never been to before.
