My husband and I are traveling to Oregon 9/3/16 to 9/17/16. My husband has low vision but I still want to take him to the Columbia river and mt. hood scenic byways. Also want to see Crater Lake National park and then the coastline. My thought was to start with Columbia river and mt hood scenic byways and work my way down to Crater lake then to the coast. What I could use is some help for the best routes to take with some nice scenery, river hikes, etc. that are low vision friendly. Here is my itinerary so far: Day 2: drive to Troutdale to Columbia River scenic byway, stop by Hood River and continue from there to the Mt. Hood scenic byway and stay at Timberline lodge.
Day 4: Drive the McKenzie Pass scenic byway, hike to Sahalie falls and Koosah Falls. then back to either Redmond or Bend.
Day 5: Drive to Crater Lake National park and drive the rim. Stay overnight somewhere as the Lodge is booked solid.
Day 6: Drive towards Union Creek to follow the northern part of the Roque-Umpqua scenic byway to Bandon or Drive towards Union Creek to follow the southern part of the Roque-Umpqua byway to Brookings. Need recommendations here to which would be better. Stay overnight.
Day 11 Explore Williamette Valley wineries on the way to Portland. Stay in Portland until Day 14.
Any recommendations along the coastal route or the wineries as to where to stay and what to see would be greatly appreciated.
