My husband and I are traveling from Portland to Bend from Aug 8 - 12 with a Crater Lake day trip during that time. He just accepted a new job and now has that week off in between so we'd like to extend the trip and do more exploring from Tuesday - Saturday. We had thought about going down to northern California to visit friends but think that might be too much driving and not enough exploring.
Any suggestions for routes in Eastern Oregon? We like hiking, beer, local food, beautiful scenery.
