Some of North America’s best looking areas are found in the Pacific Northwest. With a jaw-dropping array of hiking and backpacking opportunities along pristine coastlines featuring untapped beauty.

The only downside is that snow lingers late for anything with a elevation over 5,000 feet, so the window for exploring alpine meadows and lakes is relatively short. The best months are August, September and even early October. A drive through Central Oregon is the best.
