Scenic Landscapes Of Oregon
Oregon has the most scenic byways and tour routes of any other state. That means that you can see a lot more of Oregon than you thought by just getting behind the wheel of a car. After all, Oregon is a huge state; it stretches 400 miles across and is over 360 miles long. We’ve been to Oregon a few times and have realized that since is such a big state, you definitely need at least a couple week to see all the highlights, but if you’re willing to drive quite a bit, you can definitely experience a taste of all it has to offer: forests of towering trees, snowcapped volcanic peaks and waves crashing on rugged shores. From small picturesque country towns to vast landscapes, Oregon had us in awe around every corner.
On this trip we started off in Vancouver, BC and headed to Beaverton, a suburb of Portland. We made our way to Sunriver for a couple nights, made our way to The Painted Hills, then along part of the Coast to Astoria, and then headed to Woodburn for a stop at the Tulip Festival before heading home.
It was a busy long weekend, but we were blessed with the most gorgeous weather every day, minus hitting some rain on the last day before the clouds decided to part for another beautiful day. We were so happy to get some sun since Oregon (like our hometown of Vancouver, BC) has a lot of rain. Oregon was proof that you don’t always have to venture far, far away to find a great adventure.

After driving around part of gorgeous Oregon, we decided that we still can’t get enough. We would love to get back there and do some more exploring.
