I have never been to Oregon, so do the following features sound like it would be a fitting description of southwest Oregon? I'm trying to help someone make a decision.
  • A quiet highway near an ocean and a small, friendly community
  • A large snow-capped mountain or mountain range
  • Pine trees
Input would be appreciated!

Shore pines are common on the Pacific Coast, and there are multiple feeder roads off of 101. I don't know if you would call them highways, but some of them are paved.

Generally the Siskiyous are not high enough to be snow-capped, so you might have to drive inland 2-3 hours for that. Mt. McLoughlin is pretty.

I second that, and I think you'll find that is the situation along the entirety of our coast. For mountains within sight of the ocean, my best guess would be Northwest Washington.


That is, apparently, Port Angeles, and although I've never been there, google has its population at just under 20,000. Are they set on being in Oregon? And what is their idea of "small"? Under 50,000? Under 20,000? Under 5000? A few hundred?

No, he's not set on Oregon. And he doesn't want to be near any "huge" cities, so I'm guessing Portland/Seattle, etc.

Well, Port Angeles looks to be 2 hours or so from Seattle. An easy drive on a weekend, but far away enough to not draw traffic. That's really the extent of my Washington knowledge, however. I would ask there for more help. Much as I hate to point people away from Oregon...

Sequim is in the rain shadow of the Olympic Range, and a really nice place to live. Less rain and fog than more exposed areas.
