939 SE Belmont St, Portland, OR 97214, USA
With more than 60 breweries, Portland has more than anywhere else in the world. If you do not start drinking at dawn, and drink at lunch, and drink through the evening, you are not doing your part.

20022 Silver Falls Hwy SE, Sublimity, OR 97385, USA
About 45 minutes east of Salem, Oregon is Silverfalls State Park. The Canyon Train (or the Trail of 10 Falls) is an easy-ish hike that brings you face to face with ten falls, each unique. The trail leads behind some of the falls, like the South...

53000 East Historic Columbia River Hwy, Corbett, OR 97019, USA
Multnomah Falls is a gorgeous sight located about 45 minutes by car outside of Portland, Oregon, on the Columbia River Gorge. Several hikes of differing degrees of difficulty offer vantage points to view the falls. The sound of the rushing water...

Haystack Rock, Cannon Beach, OR 97145, USA
You know how we hold our breath when we go underwater? Mussels hold their water when the tides recede, as happens here on the misty and moody and every now and then sunny Oregon coast. Later we popped into a seafood place down the road. The...

34600 Gary St, Nehalem, OR 97131, USA
On the shores of Oregon's Nehalem Bay, a billion ghostly pieces of unpainted, unassembled, unmilled furniture, just waiting for the right carpenter.

2740 S Pacific St, Cannon Beach, OR 97110, USA
For those of you familiar with the iconic 1985 film, the Haystack Rocks meant the world to kids from the Goon Docks. It had always been a lifelong dream of mine to venture to the setting of the movie and find my own "treasure." The Pacific Coast...

Oregon, USA
If you have never had the opportunity to see Crater Lake in person, nothing can quite prepare you for the intense azul waters reflecting the sky. The deepest lake in the US, it is made up completely of collected water from melted snow and rain...
Save Place
Bend, OR, USA
There are countless hiking trails and picturesque lakes along the cascade lakes highway. My personal favorite is the hike up south sister. If you stay out a bit later stop by the lodge at elk lake for some good food (albeit the service is a touch...
Save Place
Yachats, OR, USA
As I watched the sun set over the Pacific Ocean from my hotel balcony, I watched this man on the rocks. He seemed to be loving the crash of the waves and the warmth of the light. The ocean seems to have a power over us, as if we are hypnotized by...

Oregon, USA
I've seen pictures, I've heard stories, but when I actually saw Crater Lake with my own eyes, all I could think was "Is this for real?!?!" Yes - water is THAT blue, clean and clear Yes - you feel like you're on a different planet YES - it will...

Yachats Ocean Rd, Yachats, OR 97498, USA
All I could say when I saw this stunning lighthouse perched on the rocky cliff near Yachats, Oregon was "Wow". I am certainly a sucker for lighthouses, especially ones that have the dramatic landscape surrounding it. The Heceta Head is about 15...

350 W Cordova St, Vancouver, BC V6B 1E8, Canada
Jennifer MacKay’s clothing boutique is the go-to store for fashionable locals, who know they’ll find pieces exclusively in her shop. I have a weakness for the shoes. (604) 685-8885. As told to Rhonda May. This appeared in the September, 2012...

1 Point Reyes-Petaluma Rd, Inverness, CA 94937, USA
The craggy-rock view from the top of the staircase out to the Point Reyes National Seashore looks just fine from the top. But you didn't drive all this way to stand at the top while everyone else descends to see the historic Point Reyes...
Save Place
California, USA
Upon my return from an annual camping trip in Northern California's Mount Lassen National Park, I read the news. It turns out the that fire raged over the ridge across the lake from us all week long was national news. This shocked me due to the...

Lummi Island, Washington, USA
Despite its remote location, this is a culinary journey that any foodie should make every effort to make. The ultra local menu is designed and orchestrated by Blaine Wetzel, former sous-chef at Noma. Every course is a journey through the immediate...

Central WA is a beautiful place. It's where families are on camping trips and avid outdoors enthusiasts intersect. Blue Lake is a great place to stretch your legs from a long drive on Hwy 20. It is an easy 4.4 mile roundtrip hike in the shade --...
