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?
