In my research on Oregon, over the last couple of years; I came across a story about one of the coastal sites, setting out glass globes…hiding them like easter eggs. Where does this take place, or does it anymore?
You’re definitely thinking of Lincoln City, where they set out more than 2,000 colorful blown glass “floats” between October and May. The program began in 1999, to celebrate the millennium, and now the “Float Fairies” are at work every year. The floats are modeled on the traditional Japanese blown glass fishing floats, in green and blue, that used to wash up on these beaches. They’ve expanded the program to include a “blow your own” glass foundry, and local galleries also specialize in these floats. Happy hunting! http://www.oregoncoast.org/glass-art-blowing/
I’m a big fan of Liner & Elsen Wines shop in Northwest Portland
If you’re looking to visit ghost towns like Whitney, Eastern Oregon’s the place.
Best snowshoeing in Central Oregon? We need to work off the big ol’ dinner we’re gonna eat at Cowboy Dinner Tree over New Years.
There are some amazing trails in Central Oregon Two questions: 1. Where in Central Oregon will you be staying? 2. Over ten miles round trip or under? FYI I am Asit Rathod aka President of Powder for Ask Oregon. Born and raised here in Oregon and love snow!
There a few world famous snowboard camps and resorts here in Oregon. Mt. Hood Meadows has some great snowboard camps, depending on when you’re coming out.
We are recent transplants from California to the beautiful Umpqua Valley. My wife and I enjoy hunting and fishing. When is the best time to fish for winter steelhead and salmon in the Southern Umpqua River?
I’m not too familiar with fishing the Umpqua. I’ve personally only fished it for smallmouth bass. But, as a general rule winter steelhead will be picking up in January and last through March. The salmon fishing will be winding down about now.
Any suggestions on what I should stop and get pics of enroute to LaPine? What is great that direction this time of year?
Smith Rock is stunning, as are Dillon&Benham Falls on the Deschutes. Detour up Century Drive to view the snowy Cascades! Bend’s Drake Park is lovely this time of year. Trees with fall foliage by the river. Good excuse to grab lunch downtown, too.
