Would this also work heading back to California?

Its is a beautiful drive from Portland to Biggs Junction, make sure you stop at the multinoma falls, there are 5 falls, worth seeing at least three. Hood River is a nice town to visit. There is a climb out of biggs junction to the top of the hill. Stop near Madris and stand in the middle of a large circle of rocks, each aligning with a major mountain, I think there are seven. There is the very deep canyon north of Bend. A lot to see, we love the back roads, you miss so much on the freeways. ENJOY

We just did all those grades from Redding,Ca. to Canyonville Or. and it was in the high 90's- up to 101 while on those 7% grades. Nasty is right. We felt after those mountains and heat we would be ready for anything now.

101 south, west of Portland is a great drive, Coos Bay, Bandon, Port orford, Gold Beach, Brookings, stop at harris beach state park. Its GREAT. Oregon has some nice state parks.Then on into the redwoods in Ca. We have spent two weeks there and still missed a lot.
We live in a beautiful country, if you just slow down enough to see it.
