Celebrate birdwatching in the Klamath Basin-Part 2

Feb 22, 2017

Sometimes you just need to get away. Get away from the hustle and bustle of your everyday life, chores, responsibility and everything else. Get away with your family, a best friend, your special someone or even alone. A new top-favorite for me to do this at is the Running Y Ranch Resort, located just minutes from downtown Klamath Falls and less than an hour jaunt from Crater Lake National Park.

48 Hours for Kids in Klamath Falls

Klamath Falls is best known, perhaps, as a gateway to Crater Lake National Park — and yes, you must go during your stay — but this town has much more going for it than an easy commute to one of the world’s most scenic lakes. It’s also on the migration path of hundreds of bird species, everything from magnificent bald eagles to waterfowl. Ready to make a family weekend of it? Here’s how.

Here are 5 must-see waterfalls along the Rogue and Umpqua Rivers.

Fall Family Retreats in Ashland

When the fall crush of homework, soccer, carpools and daylight savings becomes too punishing, sometimes there’s only one thing to do: Find a long weekend and pile into the van for a mini family retreat. Often, a good car ride together is the best way to reconnect.

When the summer crowds and intense heat fade but the sunshine remains, the air is crisp and the light golden. Late September is a magical time in Oregon’s parks — the perfect time for a joyride on two wheels at either of two organized events: Crater Lake’s Ride the Rim event, and National Bike Your Park Day.
