We are staying 8 days in the Portland area, july 29 thru August 5. We want to spend at least 3 days in the Columbia River Gourge area, couple days in Willamett Valley, and finish 3days in the city of Portland. Is it worth switching hotels to Willamett or can we stay in Portland the whole time! And travel from there as our base. And if we do our concern is the drive from wine country.

The lion cubs are out now at Oregon Zoo, and they are super adorable and playful. There are some nice hikes up around the zoo in Washington Park, too.

- I will be in Eugene for a meeting on Jan 14th and 15th and would like to see some of the Oregon Coast; perhaps on the previous weekend or maybe starting on Jan 10th. What area would be relatively easy to drive to from Eugene or Portland? What kind of weather should I expect? Can you suggest some B&Bs? — Lois
