We will be flying into portland mid October and staying 10 days. Current itinerary consists of gorge area, mount hood, bend, crater lake, and then over to pacific city to take the coastal route up to Astoria. We want to have time for scenic hikes, biking, possible kayaking, vineyards, and want areas that will have the best fall colors. Just wondering if it makes sense to include bend and crater lake or if this is adding too much driving time. Crater lake looks beautiful, but I've read October can be the start of winter in that area. Any itinerary comments/suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.
