  • There are some neat old WWII bunkers along the trail from Seaside through Cannon Beach at Indian point.

    • I knew about those, but haven’t been able to get up there yet. There are several more along the coast if you know where to look. They were all built as part of the Coast Patrol’s defenses during the war.

    • I believe you are referring to the WWII radar station on top of Bald Mtn in Ecola State Park.

  • Baker Air Force Station – A radar site located in (Cantonment Area) and near (Beaver Mountain) Baker Oregon. Established 1959 Closed 1968.

  • Don’t forget the radar (Reagan era) east of Christmas Valley. Or Camp Withycombe in Clackamas. Or the old National Guard Armory in NW Portland.
