End of Oregon Road Trip


DSC_0330 - Copy

We drove 1,400 miles, mostly through Oregon with great weather and little traffic. People were friendly, although there were pockets of anger: protests in Portland and “hands off my guns” messages on car windows.  There was no sales tax: a $5 hamburger was $5 out the door. You weren’t allowed to pump your own gas–New Jersey and Oregon are the only two states with that rule–and the freeway speed limit was five to ten mph less than California’s. And it was green, green, green. We never saw the rain that locals say happens all the time. The parting shot, above, was taken from the dunes overlooking Cannon Beach.

One thought on “End of Oregon Road Trip

  1. Portland has been a mess since the election…and unfortunately getting worse. Us in smaller towns and along the coast are pretty much the same as we’ve always been. I’m so glad the weather cooperated for you while you visited Oregon. You’ve had some great photos.
