Northwest Travel & Life Magazine: Old Highway 99 Road Trip

11 01 2022

Up until the completion of Interstate 5, Route 99 was the main north-south highway running the length of America’s west coast, from Mexico to Canada. In the Northwest, much of that old route still exists. And while it might not be as efficient with regard to driving time as I-5, its winding path through Oregon wine country from Portland to Eugene showcases the best the Willamette Valley has to offer – and makes for a spectacular road trip! Let me tell you about it here.

It has been a while since many of the magazines I normally write for have put anything out in print. Slowly and carefully, however, things are coming back online. My latest for Northwest Travel & Life Magazine is about one of my favorite forms of travel, which might also be one of the safer forms available to us at the moment. But beyond the inherent benefits of fewer people and wide-open spaces, rural travel has so much more to offer. It’s on newsstands now, or click here for the PDF version.
