Sheep Rock Visitor Center at the John Day Fossil BedsIf you, like me, are always on the lookout for scenic road trips, here’s a must-see blog post, from Matador Trips: 39 of the World’s Most Inspiring Routes for Road Trips.
The spectacular, frame-worthy photos are indeed inspiring, as are many of the exotic locales — i.e., Patagonia, New Zealand, Romania, Norway, Iceland, Pakistan and Laos, to name a few.
But for those of us with less time and/or money to burn, there are plenty of options closer to home, too. Included in the mix are California 129 (which connects Reno to Klamath Falls), the Columbia River Gorge, California Highway 236 (which heads toward Big Basin Redwoods State Park), Utah Highway 163 (Monument Valley) and the byways off Interstate 5 in Eastern Oregon.
Happy trails!
