We will be driving the Oregon coast the last week of our trip. We will be begin in Brookings on a Sunday morning and travel north. After reading about the Columbia River Gorge, we decided to incorporate it into our trip before leaving the area. We will fly out of Sacramento the following Friday. That gives us five travel days. Does anyone have any suggestions on whether or not we should continue on up the coast hwy. to Astoria before heading over toward Portland or should be end our coastal drive in Lincoln City? Our trip is the first week of Sept.
