In mid August 2013, we, husband and wife in the early sixties are considering the following route in Oregon:
Beaverton to Astoria, to Cannon Beach, to Manzanita to Pacific City, to Newport to Yachats to Florence, to Eugene, to Klamath Falls to Crater Lake to Bend and back to Beaverton. Our host lives in Beaverton. I am aware of total driving distance of about 900 miles and 20 hours.
1. How many nights should we allow on the way, four or five?
2. Or should we break the journey at Florence and come back to Beaverton and then again start the journey to Bend, Crater Lake and Klamath Falls?
3. What city should we stay at and what hotel suggestions?
4. Since Crater Lake has limited hotels, we wonder if staying in Klamoth Falls makes sense or any other reasonably priced place nearby is available?.
We love nature and scenery of mountains and water. We have done Pacific Coast Highway from SFO to San Diego and loved it.
Thanks Oregon experts!
