Day 6 (final): Oregon Road Trip

We left Youngberg Hill Winery after a rough night - the guy in the room next door snored and the wall didn't seem to block any noise. We had the typical B and B breakfast experience with other guests and luckily the breakfast wasn't that great so we were primed and ready for a great lunch at Gathering Together Farm near Corvallis. Traveling through the wine country we had expected to see lots of vineyards, but no . . . it was hazelnut trees and grass growing operations. The huge 'lawns' were beautiful, dotted by groves of trees.  We stopped at Benton Lane Winery and picked up a few bottles of their Pinot Gris, one of our favorites. Then on to Eugene for some shopping at the mall and then a check in at Inn at the 5th. We are getting a little road weary and since we have been eating and drinking our way through Oregon, decided to stay in and just enjoy our nice room. Tomorrow, home and back to 'real life.' Great trip. We got lots of ideas for our next trip - in a few years.
