Image Caption: STS068-273-038 Cape Blanco, Oregon, U.S.A. October 1994
Cape Blanco, the westernmost point in the contiguous United States, is featured in this low-oblique, south-southeasterly-looking photograph. Known as one of the windiest places in the western United States, Cape Blanco has registered winds of 184 miles (296 kilometers) an hour. Barely discernible north and west of the cape is a small, rocky arc. Visible are the forest-covered Coast Ranges and the Coquille River as it enters the Pacific Ocean.
