Roll The Windows Down And Take A Drive On The McKenzie Pass-Santiam Pass Scenic Byway In Oregon
Oregon is hands-down the most beautiful state in the nation. We’re lucky to enjoy vast forests with towering trees, crystal-clear rivers and stunning waterfalls, a rugged coastline with walkable beaches and vast ocean views, and mountains formed by ancient volcanoes towering over all of it.
If you’ve been missing out on the Beaver State’s natural beauty lately, it’s time to gas up the car and get out there for a scenic drive. One of our favorites is the McKenzie Pass-Santiam Pass Scenic Byway.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
