Portland, Oregon. Where rain, bearded men and flannels are in abundance.
Eugene, Oregon. The home of University of Oregon and soon to be drafted Marcus Mariota. Also the birth place of Nike- it was real treat for me to stand there given my love for the brand.
A 4-hour drive south of Portland lies Crater Lake- the deepest lake in the states. Roads were closed and a detour was required to reach the summit. But it was damn worth it. The view was breathtaking and I can only image what it's like watching the sunset from here.
And every road trip should end at a local burger joint in a little town in the middle of nowhere. Phil's Frosty in Shady Cove fulfilled our burger, crinkle fries, onion rings and soft serve fix.
