Cara and Ryan's Oregon Road Trip Adventure!

Once Upon a Time in Portland, Oregon Cara and Ryan set out on a road trip to see all that Oregon had to offer....




They headed for the coast! Welcome to Seaside, Astoria, Cannon Beach, Lincoln City, Tillamook, Coos Bay and more! They drove scenic Highway 101 from North to South taking in the sights! In Tillamook, they ate cheese, learned how to make cheese, were mesmerized by cheese production and bought cheese! They decided cheese curds are on of the yummiest things on the planet!



They ate Clam Chowder all the way down the coast! Yum! With saltines an' all!


They saw lighthouses!


They saw nature!


They stopped by Crater Lake to see what they thought was the deepest blue on Earth! It was beautiful! It was cold and windy! They hiked up to Watchman's Peak where Ryan snapped this photo of Cara and they gazed at the majestic beauty that is the second deepest lake in the world!



During the road trip, they camped and cooked egg mcmuffins.



They headed back towards Portland and saw Mount Hood and Mount Bachelor. This is Cara with beautiful Oregon forest in the background. Oregon is so green.


And then it was back to Portland! Home Sweet Home for Ryan and where Cara would plan her adventures to the East Coast of both Canada and the States. Cara has done a fabulous job of getting in touch with her friends in Toronto, Montreal, Quebec City, NY and DC and will be off on her next adventure as soon as she is well enough...yes, right now she is MEGA sick. Her throat and tonsils are trying to kill her! But lucky enough to be resting at Ryan's and will post again when back on the road!
