One great way to experience the beauty of Oregon in the wintertime is to take a scenic drive. From charming covered bridges to stunning frozen waterfalls, these 8 wonderful drives are packed with beautiful sights.
**In the winter months, many of Oregon’s byways are closed due to snow or ice, but these ones are typically open year round. However, the conditions vary day by day, so you’ll need to check the weather conditions, and, in some cases, be prepared with snow tires, chains, four wheel drive, etc. This year in particular has been notorious for icy roads, so make sure to be extra careful and do your research before heading out.**
