Portland, Columbia River Gorge, Eugene and Florence.
Natural beauty in every direction. Mountains, roadside waterfalls, lush green moss on everything. Beautiful sights and cool people. Good coffee and the best local red wine ever. I made new friends and saw old ones. Stopped at the largest stinky sea lion cave and hung with naked hippies in a hot spring. We hiked a butte at sunset. We had so many good laughs. Eli had explosive poops twice on the plane ride there. People probably thought Heidi and I were a lesbian couple. The coast kicked ass. Oregon is perfect.
