Shakespeare, Will

On the Trail to Oregon

Next week I'm leaving for a few exciting days at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. Hamlet! Merchant of Venice! Pride and Prejudice! I'm looking forward to a lovely drive up through California

I'll be there with a group of people, but I'll also be doing some exploring on my own. This is my first time there, and I'm looking for advice. I've already got a copy of Roadside Geology of Oregon, because otherwise I will go insane trying to figure out 4.5 billion years of geologic history from the evidence of rock outcrops zipping past at 70mph. Especially risky if I happen to be the driver.

What should I see?

Any restaurant recommendations?

Anything to avoid?

Is the weather really as mild as Wunderground.com seems to think?
