Day 2 & 3 of 14:  The drive through Oregon was nice and easy (approx. 6 hr drive).  We stayed in a hotel in downtown Portland.  I was glad to have the hubs drive with all the one-way streets in the downtown area.  The people we encountered in Portland were nice in comparison to other cities we stopped off in Oregon.  Of course we had to make a stop at Voodoo Donuts.  The line was kind of long, but not a big deal.  The best part of our visit in Portland was our day trip to the Columbia River.  We visited some beautiful vistas (Women's Forum, Vista Home, & Sherrad Viewpoint) and then made the short trip to the nearby waterfalls.  All were breathtaking in their own way and I couldn't get enough pictures.  We only visited the easily accessible falls (Latourell, Shepperds Dell, Wahkeena, & Multnomah), but if you have the time and are in the mood to hike you might want to check out the others along the river.  You can visit http://www.waterfallswest.com/page.php?id=columbiarivergorge for more information.
