I have 6 nights to visit Oregon in mid-July. I'm starting in Sacramento and need to spend a night in or near Bend, and want to end near Hood River. I'm staying away from the coast this time and will be camping.
I'm interested in byways and generally scenic drives. I don't want to spend much more than 5 hours a day driving (not counting stops).
I'm a big waterfall and rain forest fan.
It seems that the Rogue Umpqua byway would fit the bill. I also would like to see Crater lake. Any suggestions on a route would be appreciated!
It's hard to know where to begin in such a scenic state!
