After a stroll around the crater, you’ll get back on the road and head for what’s hands down the outdoor activity capitol of the west, the little city of Bend.

Located on the mighty Columbia River, the city of Portland is also known as The Rose City, a name it’s held since 1888 to celebrate the planting of miles of rose bushes across the city. Portland boasts the impressive and voluminous Powell’s City of Books, which takes up an entire city block of downtown Portland.
