Chicken Dinnier Viewpoint - Samuel H. Boardman State Park, Oregon

Before you start looking on Google maps for Chicken Dinner Viewpoint on the Oregon Coast, don't bother, we made up the name. A little explanation is in order. Jeff Clow and I were scouting the length of the Oregon Coast last April for his upcoming Photo Tour there in September (we have two tours with a few spots left on the second one if you are interested). For those of you who follow us, you might remember that of the ten days we spent there, approximately nine of those days it was raining. We were near the end of the scouting trip on the southern coast visiting Samuel H. Boardman State Scenic Corridor. The corridor is twelve miles in length and there are many challenging trails that show off some wonderful views of coastline. Luckily, there are also many pullovers that have some impressive views without hiking. Most of those have names but there are a few that do not. When we pulled into this unnamed pullover, it was drizzling. Being always wet, we jumped out and took a look and saw this scene. My first words were "Winner, winner, chicken dinner." Jeff, with his penchant for naming things proclaimed that this would be the new name for this viewpoint.
