Oregon in Early Spring Itinerary (10 Days)

This itinerary focused on spending a week in the state of Oregon. The main purpose of this trip was to sample the plethora of waterfalls that were here - both within the famous Columbia River Gorge as well as outside the waterfall-rich area. Indeed, we had a pretty elaborate plan of visiting many of the state's major waterfalls. However, those plans had to change when a strong and persistent late Winter storm dumped enough snow in the mountains to force us to look towards the coast during the middle of the trip. That meant last-minute cancellations and alternate bookings.

It turned out to be a pretty good unplanned alternative, and in a way, it forced us to diversify the target attractions on this trip instead of being so waterfall-heavy. In fact, Julie and I still long to return to the Oregon Coast under better weather to fully experience what the area has to offer...
