Land and Water

The headlands of Cape Disappointment protect a bay just inside the mouth of the river. This small spit of land divides the estuary from the beach, and marks the transition from fresh to salt water. From one side of the Cape, islands and marshes of the estuary are backed by the Oregon shoreline and mountain ridges. Just a few minutes walk across the Cape to the other side, and waves pound a sandy beach.
