Devil’s Punchbowl State Park is in between Newport, OR and Lincoln City. There is no admission to get into the park.

There’s an easy path along the cliff with breathtaking views. We were told this is a great place to spot whales, but we never saw one. There’s also picnic tables in the park and a small winery, The Flying Dutchman Winery.

Abuelo's Salsa Recipe

Salsa is hands down my favorite thing to eat and Abuelo's Restaurant has excellent salsa. They recently shared the recipe on their Facebook page. Here's their salsa recipe.

1 – 14oz can of whole peeled tomatoes (reserve juice)
1 large fresh jalapeño, stem removed and cut into 3 pieces (the number of jalapeño’s may be adjusted for heat level. 2 yield hot, 3 very hot)
1 small clove garlic
2 TBS chopped onions
Cilantro to taste (about 2 TBS)
Salt to taste

Wash produce before using.

Place a small sauté pan on medium heat and cook jalapeño and garlic until slightly charred. Add all vegetables to a food processor and pulse to a coarse chop, adding the reserved juice. Salt to taste.
