Willamette Valley Autumn Drive


This was one of the best trips of my life. And, we didn't need to fly over the ocean and go through time changes. 
Mesmerizing landscapes, stunning sweeping views, excellent local food and wines (especially pinot noir) were waiting for us in our neighboring state, Oregon. 
Sloping fields, orchids, hundreds of vineyards, rolling hills, gorgeous foliage fall palettes  - every mile of the way had something to excite travelers.
The enchanted, beautiful, friendly Willamette Valley showed us its best, and I want to share some of it with you in this post.
