I have been lucky enough to have vacationed in Oregon twice so far this year. There is no denying it is an exceptionally scenic state. Everyone should drive the coast at least once in their life. My personal favorite view is looking out at the Pacific Ocean and Columbia River from the column in Astoria.
My one disappointment….. Just a few days after returning from the last trip, I was watching the History Channel about Howard Hughes’ plane, The Spruce Goose. I had no idea it was located in McMinnville, Oregon. I have always wanted to see it and can’t believe I was that close by and didn’t even know that it was there. Well, I guess that just gives me a reason to visit again.
