Pack up the car and enjoy forty-five drives through some of the most spectacular scenery in the Beaver State. This indispensable highway companion maps out short trips for exploring scenic byways and back roads along the Pacific Coast and magnificent Columbia River Gorge, and through unspoiled wilderness, fertile farmlands, vineyards, orchards, and deserts filled with sagebrush. Oregon is a state of geographic contrasts created by eons of geological force--from the rocky shore to the high desert. Discover the wonders of this varied landscape, and enjoy skiing, fishing, boating, and historical attractions and museums along the way.
