I'm in the process of planning a one way road trip from portland to LA from the evening of oct 23rd to the evening of nov 3rd. I know I want to spend time in both Oregon and CA wine countries and drive scenic routes stopping along the way to see the major sites. I don't want to plan every day out but would like suggestions on things/routes not to miss. And does it make sense to use Portland as a base for exploring a bit in OR wine country or are there better suggestions?
Thanks in advance for any info as I want to make sure my husband & I have a great time!
