Vacation Planning

I have a week off coming up in July and I am not planning on travelling anywhere, but I want to make day trips to places I don't normally go. Any ideas for my Nine Days of Freedom?
Here is what I have planned so far:
  • Tillamook Bay Wetlands/ Coast/ Fort Stevens- might split this into two separate days. Shorebird migration will be starting
  • Willamette Mission State Park/ Champoeg State Park- dragonflies and bluebirds!
  • Mt. Hood National Forest hike with my grandpa
  • Mt. St. Helens hike
That covers North, South, East, and West. Any suggestions?

Napping Force Lake mallard


  1. I dont know of these places but sounds great .Take lots of photos please I would like to see these places ! Nice photo of Mr Mallard . Have a good day !

  2. Larch Mountain, Mount Hood.

  3. They all sound like great places. I am looking forward to my Oregon trip in July. Love the Mallard shot. Have a great day!

  4. Ooh, I know I have suggestions I just have to think of them! The Eagle Creek area (exit 41-ish off I-84) is fun- both the overlook area and the trails and hatchery.. Lincoln City/Newport are always good... I'll keep thinking about it..

  5. June Lake if you're hiking near St. Helens. Went once, it was great!
