I got myself a rental car in San Francisco and drove solo all the way up to Oregon. I had a week and wanted to explore as much as possible. So I drove 5000 km in seven days, went along the coast and then Central and Southern Oregon. I bought an air mattress, threw it in the back of the car and spent six cold nights in the JEEP. This is a visual diary of the beauty I have seen.
Oregon offers 363 miles of stunning public coastline dotted with historic lighthouses, fishing villages and dramatic, rough sceneries.
Oregon is well known for its never ending coast line, but the back country is just as breathtaking and wonderful to explore - a space wide open.
The Painted Hills
Crater Lake (53,35 km²) has been on my list for quite a while. I love being at places without the distraction of other people. I set my alarm for 4.30 am and drove all the way up from Klamath Falls to be there at sunrise. There was no-one.
Heading back to San Francisco through deep green forests.
