One of the most stunning views in the Beaver State is found on the Northern Oregon Coast Range – the highest point on the coast. At 1,683 feet, this mountain is so spectacular that the native people in this region graced it with its name, “Neahkahnie,” which means “place of supreme deity.” Get a look at this view, and you’ll agree that it’s a view worthy of gods.
