Then it’s time to get some hiking done amidst the snowy mountain peaks. Keep your eyes peeled from some of the diverse wildlife that calls this place home. As the light begins to fade and your feet feel heavier from all of that exploring the group will head just outside the park to camp under the stars.

Let’s get weird in Portland! Being one of the most popular cities to visit on the West Coast north of California Portland is artsy, funky, full of great food/drink options and not to mention extremely easy to fall in love with. Between the lush green forest, mountains shrouded in mist, and endless craft breweries sprinkled all over the city, you’ll have no problem finding a creative way to get to know this wacky place.

It’s time to leave the bizarre behind as you make your way to Bend, Oregon, consistently voted one of the best places to live in the U.S. Arrive just in time to find yourself the perfect place to eat lunch. Then grab your buddies and explore town a bit. Maybe you’ll head to another craft brewery, or maybe you’ll try kayaking and canoeing through the beautiful water of Cascade lake. Or even better? Maybe you’ll do both!

Breakfast

Day 5Bend/Redwood National Park

Rise and shine and hit the road early to take full advantage of the sights at gorgeous Crater Lake National Park.

To get a true sense of the enormity of these trees, try taking a picture of you hugging one of them.
