Known internationally for its natural beauty, recreational wonders, and cultural intrigue, the Redwood Forest is the ultimate adventure spot. This road trip is so kindly referred to as “one of the best in the West.” and should be on the top of every bucket list. NPR’s Ketzel Levine states, “moving through a grove of immense trees is so surreal.” “It’s tough to get your bearings. Some of these creatures put down their first, thirsty roots 2,000 years ago. To describe their beauty is to miss their menace; to speak of their size is to deny their grace. Fallen logs the size of beached whales…charred stumps a team of horses high and wide…and in the air, the scent of earth, barks and compost stirred with the wind,” said Levine. Whether you choose to stroll along the beach or hike through the woods, the Redwood National Park is the perfect woodland escape, because it allows you to step back in time.
From the epic rock formations of Washington’s Cape Flattery to natural bridges in Southern Oregon to the winding roads of Big Sur, California, there is always something new to see along this coastal drive! So what is the Pacific Coast Highway exactly? You can also recognize it by its abbreviation (PCH), California Coast Road Trip, Pacific Coast Road Trip, Route 1, Highway 101 (through Washington and Oregon), or even just Highway 1 (in California).
Ready to visit another one of the 7 Wonders of Oregon? Fuel up your car, que up your playlist, buckle up, and get ready for an unforgettable trip to Crater Lake National Park. Crater Lake National Park is a natural wonder born out of a cataclysmic volcanic eruption. Crowning the Cascade Mountain Range, the park contains vibrant forests, bountiful wildlife and an awe-inspiring blue lake worthy of its nickname “lake majesty.” Its geologic history spans back thousands of years and inspires visitors today as they swim, snowshoe, ski, hike and cycle through the mountainous terrain. With countless other activities and thousands of acres to explore, adventure is endless at Crater Lake.
THE HIGH DESERT
When traveling to Oregon, I’m sure you are dreaming of beautiful greenery throughout the state due to all the rain. But, have you considered the desert? Yes, you read that right… the desert… in Oregon. While many of us have driven through deserts found much more south of Oregon, you are met with endless road looking at nothing. Well, maybe the occasional hill or cactus, but in Oregon the desert is much more vast. Meet The High Desert. Starting at the eastern edge of the Cascade Mountains and stretching out toward Idaho and Nevada, the high desert region makes up roughly a quarter of all land in Oregon. It rises to more than 9,700 feet above sea level at Steens Mountain and dips to just over 2,000 feet along the Owyhee River on the eastern border.
We all have dreamt about adventuring off to the 7 Wonders of the World, but it’s not so easy to drop everything and run off to another country. Well, we’ve got a secret for you. Oregon has 7 wonders of its own and it’s much easier to plan a visit to. Located at the north end of the Oregon Cascades, just east of Portland, you will find Mount Hood, Oregon’s highest peak, the most well-known of the Cascade’s mountains, and one of Oregon’s 7 Wonders. In the words of John Muir, “…There stood Mount Hood in all the glory of the alpenglow, looming immensely high, beaming with intelligence, and so impressive that one was overawed as if suddenly brought before some superior being newly arrived from the sky.” … “The whole mountain appeared as one glorious manifestation of divine power, enthusiastic and benevolent, glowing like a countenance with ineffable repose and beauty, before which we could only gaze in devout and lowly admiration.” Live life outdoors, from the mountains to the rivers. This is the home of explorers, filled with endless possibilities.
