Oregon, Our 9th State!

Tuesday morning we packed up, and drove our last portion of highway 101 in California. We turned off on highway 199 at mile marker 794. What a long state California is! An hour later we crossed the border into our ninth state, Oregon!

Welcome to Oregon!

Another hour's drive, and we pulled into Grant's Pass, where we were parking for the night in a local Wal-Mart Supercenter.

We got a chance to explore Grant's Pass the following morning by bike. I'd say we were pleasantly surprised  by how clean and cute Grant's Pass was.

Grant's Pass: It's the climate!
There were colorful murals throughout town, the historic downtown on 6th street was pleasant and there were colorful bear statues throughout the town proper.
