On our 7th day West Coast adventure, we got up and checked out of the cabin. We drove up to Crater Lake Lodge, which was built in 1915 and is listed as in the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. Beautiful log cabin feel with gorgeous views of Crater Lake.
We didn’t drive too far before stopping at a rest stop just off of Rogue-Umpqua Scenic Byway in Crescent, Oregon. This was a lovely place to stop to stretch our legs (and in Rob’s case his back) and take in the views of Diamond Lake, Mount Bailey and Mt. Thielsen. There were a couple informative signs about the volcanic mountains we were viewing.

We got to Roseburg, OR and decided to stop at Burrito Vaquero Restaurant. Great food at a reasonable price. Not so great service.
From Roseburg, OR to Cottage Grove is about 50 miles. Once we got to Cottage Grover we checked in and let the kids swim a bit, while Rob and I researched where to go the next day for our Dune Buggy Adventure.
After letting the boys swim awhile, they got ready and we drove over to Eugene, about 20 miles away. While planning the trip we wanted to stay in Eugene, but the everything was booked up because University of Oregon was hosting the Track and Field Olympic Trials.
Keep a look out for my next West Coast Trip post about our adventures in the Sand Dunes of Florence, OR. Fine out which one of us took a 10 foot dive off a sand dune while driving an ATV.
