Just had the pleasure of driving down the Colombia Gorge I-84 run, and then I-5 to Eugene. The roads are terrific, clean, and with amazing views. Everything was so green. very curious why no flying insects though? barely a bug on my truck. I-5 was a typical bumper to bumper with lot's o trucks, but if you're looking for a fantastic road trip do take I 84 through the gorge. The rest stops were so clean I was amazed. If the rest of the US could use Oregon's roads as a measuring stick, the entire country would be better. Loved your state!!!
