Want to take my wife on a short three day getaway. Would like for her to see a Bald Eagle and have a romantic view of the mountains, ccean, or lake. Any suggestions?
There’s one place that stands above all the other nationwide for viewing bald eagles. That’s the Klamath Basin region of Southern Oregon. While late winter is the prime time to see them, you stand a good chance during other times of the year. Here is a great story in the Mail Tribune about viewing bald eagles in the region. Contact the folks at Bear Valley National Wildlife Refuge for more specifics. As far as inspiring landscapes, the region has plenty of lakes and mountains. The ocean is many hours’ drive away. You could fly to Klamath Falls by way of Portland or San Francisco on United Airlines.

I would recommend Loon Lake Lodge & RV Resort (http://www.loonlakerv.com/) on Oregon Coast’s scenic Loon Lake. They have a lakeside house that overlooks the lake and smaller cabin rentals and yurts. Loon Lake is just outside of Reedsport.
