Okay, here's the setup. We have found time during our September visit to devote 1 day to the Bend area. The previous day, we will be driving from Grants Pass to see Crater Lake, and then on to Bend and the Shilo Inn for the night. That next day will be devoted to the Bend area, but we will have to be in Portland by bed time. Two adults just sight seeing, but I wanted your opinions on what to do because there are alot of things that sound cool and obvioulsy we can't do them all; they include:
**The town of Sisters
**McKenzie Pass/Dee Wright Observatory
**West Cascades Scenic Byway
**Salt Creek Falls on Hwy 58
**Newberry Nat'l Monument
Those look like the best options, how would you prioritize? If it helps, our vacation will also include areas like Columbia Gorge and Mt St Helen's.
Thanks for your input.
