Ghost forest emerges from the sand on the Oregon coast

Researchers aren’t sure when the forest was buried, but by most accounts it was likely a massive Cascadia subduction zone earthquake that did it in – the last one hit in the winter of 1700, and the next one is expected someday soon. The forest remained buried for centuries, unknown to locals until the winter of 1997-1998, when storms pummeled the coast and uncovered some of the trees.
 

Today, the ghost forest can be seen year-round during low tide, though exceptionally low tides (ones that approach minus two feet) reveal far more of the trees than is usually seen.

From boom to bust and back again, Astoria appeals as gateway to the Oregon coast

Founded a little over 200 years ago as America’s first settlement in the West, this port city finds itself buoyed these days by a tourist-fueled revival.

Yet history lingers here, palpable and powerful, just a two-hour drive from the state’s metropolitan center of Portland.

At the apex of Coxcomb Hill, the mural-wrapped Astoria Column traces the area’s evolution, from Capt. Robert Gray’s 1792 discovery of the Columbia River (named for his ship, the Columbia Rediviva) to the Lewis and Clark Expedition to the railroad’s arrival in the late 1800s.

At the Columbia River Maritime Museum, vivid exhibits paint a

A new Georgian restaurant is opening on Northeast Alberta Street

“During Soviet times, Georgia was the Riviera of the Black Sea,” says Kargi Gogo co-owner Sean Fredericks. “Beaches. High mountains for skiing. A huge wine-making region. Great food.”

Eight years ago, Fredericks and partner McKinze Cook traveled to the Eastern European country with the Peace Corps, quickly falling in love with the food, wine and people. In 2013, they opened Kargi Gogo, a downtown Portland food cart known for its Georgian cheesy bread and plump, knobby dumplings.

Next week, three years after it closed, Kargi Gogo will open a brick-and-mortar restaurant in the former home of The Big Egg, a plan hatched, like all the best
