Hi Folks - Currently staying near Cape Meares. Leaving tomorrow (8/23/2010) for Portland. I was thinking of driving north to Cannon Beach area, then 101 to 26 to Portland. The more direct route is through Tillamook to 6 to 26 to Portland.
We have driven the 3 capes scenic route already. Also, we have explored Rialto and Ruby Beaches in WA.
Is the Cannon Beach/Ecola State Park "side-trip" worth the longer drive?
Note: Tomorrow, after checking into our hotel, we will be heading to the Columbia Gorge.
