Planning a trip through the west coast. From Portland to San Francisco. What we must not miss?

I’d check out Astoria and Canon Beach, see this blog entry. I would take I-5 to Hwy 38 to the coast and down to San Francisco.

We are traveling to Central Oregon in early September from Scotland. We like Country and Western music and traditional jazz – and would like to know if there is a special site to go looking for places.

I am so pleased you’ll be visiting our amazing state. And September is the very best month to do so, in my humble opinion. Here in Central Oregon the skies are a bit clearer and warmer than the rest of the state. And while it can be tricky to find this regions’ roots buried under the growth and culture that has come our way in the last decades, country/western is where we began! You can still wear cowboy boots and find bluegrass and country music in these parts. I suggest you check out one of our ranch-style resorts – Black Butte Ranch, Brasada Ranch, Suttle Lake resort, or Five Pine resort – for an authentic western experience. Have a wonderful time!

Does anyone make good ice wine in Oregon?

It’s typically too warm in Oregon, but there are producers with excellent late harvest/dessert wines. Try Trisaetum or Seven of Hearts Wine Here’s an article I wrote last year about Oregon dessert wines with other recommendations. Enjoy!

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/
