I think the biggest lesson to be learned, is often you don't have to drive miles to see some great things. Often we need to think of ourselves as being a tourist or a visitor in our own towns to see what others come to see. Museums, vistas, etc. I can camp easily within 45 minutes of my home and it's just as grand as hundred of miles away!

Silver Falls State Park is easily within an hour from me and I live in Oregon's largest city: http://www.katu.com/younews/132889253.html

True at certain times of the year. When it comes to Jan, Feb, March, the Pacific Northwet is not so nice. Time to go farther afield.

Thanks for the reminder!

You are right, Sherry, I love to travel just the three western states. I have been doing it for quite a few years and have yet to see all there is to see in CA, NV & OR. One of my favorite places to camp is the CA State Mill Creek campground south of Crescent City. Sorry to say, it is one of the campgrounds that got the "axe" this fall. Jedediah Smith State Park is open, but a reservation is strongly suggested. Mill Creek used to be the overflow for Jedediah Smith so there was always a good chance to get a camp there.
