Oregon's Mt. Hood Loop Hailed Among National Magazine's Best Scenic RoadsSalem-News.com
Country magazine’s November EXTRA issue unveils the “2014 Best Scenic Roads” a special section highlighting America’s most magnificent byways.
(Milwaukee, WI) - The November EXTRA issue of Country—the magazine for readers who enjoy the land and life we love—presents an extraordinary list of the nation’s most remarkable routes.
With the changing colors of fall, many of America’s beautiful landscapes are at their most stunning, and this special section, titled “Best Scenic Roads,” allows readers to see them in all their striking hues. The Mt. Hood Scenic Loop is among those selected as one of the country’s must-see roads.
To build the annual list, Country asked some of America’s best scenic photographers to share images of their favorite scenic byways from around the country.
From the impressive list of roads and images offered, the editors at Country selected 10 that are both beautiful and varied—found in the north, south, east and west regions of the United States.
The resulting list has a wonderful range of sights, from record-setting mountains and placid lakes to preserved ghost towns and rare wildlife. New this year, the magazine also shares fun facts and tips on attractions worth visiting, must-take historical tours and more.
East of Portland, where the Columbia River divides Washington from Oregon, the Mount Hood Scenic Byway offers a breathtaking drive. This nearly triangular loop, roughly 130 miles long, first follows along the Columbia River Gorge, then arcs down and around magnificent Mount Hood.
“Road trips are about adventure, and even more important than the beautiful sights, is the company you are with. We encourage readers to get lost in their journeys, whether it’s in the pages of the magazine or on the open road with their loved ones,” says Marija Andric, Country Editor.
“This year’s list delivers more incredible drives, so families from coast to coast can enjoy the grandeur our country has to offer.”
