Day 1- 8:00 am Depart for Crater Lake National Park
Upon arrival at Crater Lake we will spend the day visiting all the incredible vistas, visitor centers, and overlooks. Crater Lake has inspired people for thousands of years with some of the 1st Native Americans who discovered its beauty and mystique. No place else on earth combines a deep, pure lake, so blue in color; steep surrounding cliffs almost two thousand feet high; two unique picturesque islands; and a violent volcanic past. It is a place of immeasurable beauty and the Nations deepest lake over 1,900 feet deep.
Boxed lunch at Crater Lake National Park.
As we drive to Crater Lake we will stop at Salt Creek Falls which is Oregon’s second highest single drop waterfall, cascading 286 feet. This waterfall is also one of Southern Oregon’s most powerful falls, with an average yearly flow of 50,000 gallons per minute surging over the rocks.
Overnight in Eugene, Oregon
This morning we will explore the City of Eugene with a stop at the Cascades Raptor Center.
The Cascades Raptor Center has one of the largest collections of native raptor species in the Pacific Northwest. Visitors can view nearly 50 birds of prey in large outdoor aviaries. The Cascades Raptor Center’s Wildlife Hospital provides high quality medical treatment and rehabilitation to over 250 sick, injured, and orphaned birds each year. Throughout and overall, we are the naturalists, utilizing knowledge of species identification, normal habitat, diet, and behavior, as well as nesting, migrating, and foraging habits. And, finally, we have the difficult decisions to make: can we release a bird? Is its recovery complete enough to ensure a successful return to the wild – able to fly, catch food, find and defend a territory, attract a mate, reproduce, and migrate, as appropriate to its species?
As we drive to Bend we will drive over the historic Goodpasture Covered Bridge and you will have the opportunity to photograph it! This quintessential covered bridge is Oregon’s most frequently photographed covered bridge – and it’s easy to see why. Excellent vantage points along Hwy 126 showcase the bridge’s elegant 165 foot (50 m) span across the scenic McKenzie River. The bridge itself is well crafted with attention to architectural details and classic style. It is also the second longest covered bridge in Oregon (the first is Office Bridge in Westfir).
Our next stop of the day will be at Sahalie Falls. Sahalie (or “Heaven” in the Chinook language) is a mass of foaming white water plunging 100 feet (30 m) over a natural lava dam. Take an easy walk through forests of 6-foot-thick Douglas fir and droopy-limbed red cedar to see this beautiful waterfall. This famous falls can be spotted in Disney’s movie Homeward Bound.
Next, we will drive to the town of Sisters, where you will have free time to explore the quaint downtown. Sisters is a charming town with an 1880’s western theme and the shops in this town are anything but old-fashioned. Well-known artists work graces downtown Sisters in a variety of galleries and shops. Find your treasure at one of the antique shops or the perfect gift at one of the many specialty stores.
We will finish the tour today by arriving back in Bend.
