The Combia River gorge is a must, it is beautiful and a scenic road follows the gorge and brings you to all the nice spots.
The gorge started being formed millions of years ago, but at the end of the last Ice Age quick erosion due to floods, cut deep through the volcanic rock so that most affuents ended up as waterfall.
After visiting the gorge we went to Dufur where we had booked a room at the Balch hotel. This historic hotel is situated in a small country village surrounded by wheat fields.
We very much enjoyed our stay there as the place with its antique furniture was somehow surrealistic in such a rural place. In the morning it was a pleasure to discover that we got a 3 course gastronomic breakfast! Sometimes, you just don't try to undertsand and enjoy it!
The whole region south of the gorge is very volcanic and covered with fields or forests.
Needless to say that hiking was again on the agenda.
