Our neighbor to the south is home to many breathtaking locations. Last week, 18 Panorama residents embarked on a 4 day trip aimed at exploration of Oregon’s majesty.
The trip began with a tour of the Crystal Springs Rhododendron Gardens, located in Portland, OR. The group then continued on to their lodging destination, the Oregon Garden Resort in Silverton.
Before enjoying a lovely dinner in Mt. Angel, residents stopped for a scenic stroll near Mt. Angel Abbey, overlooking the Silverton Valley. Day two featured a walk along the Willamette River and a tour of the Oregon Gardens. Independently, residents indulged in a variety of activities throughout the day, including facials, massages, relaxation time in the gardens, and a visit to the local art gallery or Seven Bridges Tap Room for tasting.
The third day included a trip to Silver Falls for some spectacular views and a bit of hiking finished with cocktail hour, dinner, and live music. On their way out, the group visited the beautiful and serene, Grotto Gardens of Portland.
What a wonderfully relaxing and enjoyable excursion! One resident called it a “masterful blend of walking, hiking, sight-seeing, and history.”
