                                                From the Golden Gate to Crater Lake and beyond!
                           During the next two to three weeks you will travel though some of the most picturesque scenery in the Pacific Northwest.
                              From big city lights to rolling hills dotted with vineyards, rugged ocean cliffs, unspoiled beaches, redwood forests,
                                    400-foot waterfalls, and majestic forests. Every stop will be different and just as beautiful as the last.
