THE OREGON COAST has been a bucket list destination for my husband and I since before we married. We finally did it last September.
We drove from our home in BC Canada, south through Washington State to Oregon, down to the redwood forests, then up the coast of Oregon. This was an incredible trip!
Our first night was Hood River, which was a beautiful town and well worth the stop.
I’ve always wanted to see Crater Lake and made it there the next morning. I highly recommend it! Seeing the lake involves driving around the actual lake, climbing out of the car at various viewpoints, then jumping back in. Be prepared for wind, but also awe and amazement. (Take snacks and take advantage of the bathrooms when you see them!)
