I recently took a trip to the Pacific Northwest with my girlfriend for a wedding, so I wanted to take the week before to try and explore some of the region's moody and dramatic landscapes. Oregon delivered. Every turn from the coast to the desert had a memorable view. Once we finally got to Bend the day before the wedding, we saw the Sisters in the background and knew that's where we had to be to watch the sunrise.
