For previous posts about Bill’s and my July trip to Oregon, visit the “travel” category archive.

On day #3, Bill and I drove from Crater Lake to Brookings.  At the recommendation of the locals, we dipped down into California as opposed to taking a windy slower route through the mountains.

On Sunday, July 19th, after investigating Crater Lake, Bill and I drove to Brookings, Oregon.  Early in the drive we checked out several views of the upper Rogue River.  Then we had lunch at a brewpub in Grants Pass.

At the recommendation of several Oregonians, to avoid a windy, slow drive west over the mountains, we briefly dipped into California.  By doing so we were able to see a few redwoods.  Then we headed north back into Oregon, arriving at Brookings where we stayed the third and fourth nights of our trip.

What I remember most from this day (besides the intense blue of Crater Lake) was the rugged power of the upper Rogue River.

Within the next day or two, I’ll post photos and more information about the upper Rogue River and the brewpub.

    Great descriptiveness, Louise: “What I remember most from this day (besides the intense blue of Crater Lake) was the rugged power of the upper Rogue River.” “Intense blue” and, especially, “rugged power.” Kudos.
