I have a question...we will be in OR in August and plan to leave from Parkdale for Bend via the "long scenic route".....I think it is HWYS: NF550, 42 and 46 (going past Breitenbush and Detroit.) Is this a scenic enough road(s) to take the time doing or not? Will we see mainly trees, river, mts, etc?? We have plenty of time as we are doing a HUGE "loop" : Portland to Hood River to Crater Lake to northern CA. redwoods, and back up the coast. We enjoy scenery and hiking so any ideas what not to miss, please infor me! Thanks!
