From the top of Marys Peak, near Corvallis, Oregon, one can see the Pacific Ocean; way off in the distance.  Turn an about face and look out over the Willamette Valley.  At slightly over 4,000 Ft., Marys Peak is the highest mountain in the northern Oregon coast range.   See more below photo.

I took the train to Albany, OR. and then got off with my bike.  Biked a few miles to Corvallis to visit a friend.  We cheated.  He drove me to the top of Marys Peak in his car.  We met this bicyclist at the top.
