Thoughts and suggestions would be much appreciated on this, the Oregon half of a proposed trip this summer to Oregon and Washington. Exact details of places to stay are still to be finalised. We have found that at least 2 nights in a place allows us to explore it properly, rather than hurrying on. We are much more interested in scenery, wildlife, nature etc. than cities.
Fly into Portland from Manchester England around June 17.
North Oregon coast around Ecola State Park – 2 nights
South Oregon coast around Bandon – 2 nights
(or maybe 1 night and then 2 nights Crescent City Ca. to allow us to visit the redwoods)
Inland to Ashland – possibly an evening visit to the theatre – 1 night
Crater Lake – NP lodge or nearby – 2 nights
Bend – 4 nights
Hood River – 2 nights
Close circle in Portland before heading N to Mt St Helens.
Rest of trip ideas posted in Washington forum.
I have seen how good you guys are on this forum, so I’m really interested to know what you think.
