The Pacific Ocean is the largest of the Earth’s oceans, it extends from the Arctic Ocean to the north down to Antarctica. It is bordered by Asia, Austrailia, and the Americas. It is 63.8 million square miles and covers about 46% of the Earth’s surface. It covers about one third of the total Earth surface. The Marina trench in the western North Pacific (closest to the Asia border) is the deepest point in the world, reaching 35,797 feet deep.

The Oregon coast has a mountain range that runs north-south for about 200 miles, starting at the Columbia River down south to the Coquille River. The range is known as the Oregon Coast Range or Pacific Coast Range, it is 30-60 miles wide and averages about 1500 feet above sea level. The range is what makes the Oregon coast unique, the shore is rocky in many places as the mountains intermix with the sea, creating many islands and steep cliffs. Other things along this coast you may see are scattered trees, various vegetation, sealife and birds.
