We are considering renting a house in Linoln City for a week in August. We'd like to take several day trips during the week to see mountains, lakes and waterfalls. Are the following doable day trips?
1. Columbia Gorge, Mt. Baker, Timberline Lodge
2. Crater Lake
3. Cascades - For example, Rt 20 to Sisters. Then loop back on Rt 242, then north on Rt 126 back to Rt 20.
4. How far south on the coast would be a doable day trip from Lincoln City? I'd really like to see the large sea stacks from the shore, but I'm pretty sure these are south of Bandon. Any sea stacks in the Lincoln City area? How would you compare/constrast the coast in the Lincoln City area vs. south of Bandon?
