Explore Oregon

(National Miata Event by Willamette Miata Club)

Hosts: Don & Linda Mc

Update #1 (Dec 17, 2012)

The past three years, we have gone to National Miata Event in different parts of the USA. In 2013 we will travel to The Dalles, Oregon (on the Columbia River) to attend the Willamette Valley Miata Club EXPLORE OREGON, and invite you to come with us. Click Explore Oregon (pdf) for some details, and then visit for more details.

We can visit Mt. Rainier NP, Mt. St. Helen NP and Crater Lake NP before the event, if you wish, as we are still in the planning stages and would like to hear from you.

After the event we can head for California to visit Lassen Volcano NP, Yosemite NP, Kings Canyon NP, Sequoia NP, and Death Valley NP, and then pick up CA Route 66, if you wish, and head for home.

You may come with us for any pre or post event travel, or simply meet us at the event. If you are interested in coming, or are interested in helping us plan this trip, please contact Don Mc at:
