Oregon is one of those states that I actually want to visit, but haven't yet.  I have gotten as close as Eureka CA to the south and Mt St Helens to the north. 

But not Oregon itself.  I love the northwest.


Since that post, I spent 6 weeks in the Willamette Valley.   Specifically Dundee, Newberg, and  Carlton.

The Pinot Noir there was ridiculously good. (and plentiful)  What kills me, is how much of the local micr-vinted wine never leaves the valley.
This is probably the dumbest video I've ever posted to youtube, but its just a drive north out of Newberg, up to the top of Rex Hill, and around.

Ooh ooh!  Been down that way a few times, Wayne.  Hoping to visit the folks mid-summer.  And do some coast driving, too...Astoria is one of my favorite places, too.  We're hoping we will have some time to drive all the way up to Tofino (BC)...keeping fingers & toes crossed.  Will have to do some tough negotiations with the boss, but hoping for the best!

Thanks for the vid! :D
