OREGON

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.

EASTERN OREGON

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.

southern Oregon

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.
