Default Looking for Points of Interest during my move

Hey gang!

I will be moving from PA to OR the end of this month, following the route in the link below. I am wondering if anyone knows of any interesting stops I should make on my way. I am trying to keep it to things that are less then an hour off this route, however if there is something of high interest, i may alter the route to see it .

I am interested in anything really, tourist sites, museums, strange sites, beautiful nature sites, etc. I will be taking a lot of photos on the way!

If anyone that lives along this route wants to be extra helpful and lend a couch to sleep on, that would be great too!

Thanks for any help!

Trip from PA to OR

I have gone to see a meteor crater in Northern Arizona that was really cool, here is the link

After seeing your map it may be too far south out of your way.

I am thinking of moving to Ashland OR early Fall.

Why did you choose Oregon?

You can PM me if you would like.

Love & Light,
Truth

I think you've already seen these in my " Americas most mysterious places" thread.
And I don't think you'll find anything in Iowa or Nebraska but corn! LOL




Skinwalker Ranch

Uintah Basin, Utah


The Mystery: Its name may be a tongue-in-cheek twist on filmmaker George Lucas’s Skywalker Ranch, but this 480-acre compound in northeastern Utah is the site of many unexplained — and harrowing — incidents: roaring underground noises, the appearance of menacing blue orbs, attacks by shape-shifting beasts, and evidence of animal mutilations.


Fact: Purchased in 1994 by a couple looking to raise cattle and quickly put on the market two years later, the area—according to local Native American folklore—is legendary for its dark energies. The ranch is now managed by the National Institute for Discovery Sciences, a paranormal research organization.




Oregon Vortex

Gold Hill, Ore.


The Mystery: Measuring 165 feet in diameter and known for producing intense feelings of vertigo, this curious site in southern Oregon has attracted visitors since the 1930s. Here, balls roll uphill, brooms stand on end, and people appear to grow and shrink inside its centerpiece, a former gold mining outpost called the House of Mystery.


Fact: Whether caused by gravity anomalies, a concentration in the Earth’s magnetic fields, or paranormal presence, the Vortex’s strange phenomena is well documented, and animals still refuse to enter its sphere. Native Americans referred to it as Forbidden Ground.





The Paulding Light

Paulding, Mich.


The Mystery: For more than a century, on clear nights, unidentified spheres of light appear like clockwork on the horizon of this four corners town. To date, there’s no logical explanation for the luminescent red, white, and green balls that dance on the edge of the forest, but they are rumored to be the ghost of a railroad brakeman who met his fate on the tracks.


Fact: Locals and the curious regularly line up by the dozens for the bizarre light show; the Michigan Forest Service has even posted signs guiding sky-gazers to the best viewing spots.

Not sure if these are on your way, or if you're interested in them, but here's a couple more........................

Hagerman Fossil Beds National Monument
Hagerman Idaho,
Trails wind through this area that yields late Pliocene epoch fossils.
Hikers view canyon wall sediment layers close-up!
(208-837-4793)


Vedauwoo Rocks
East of Laramie Wyoming,
Wind and water erosion created haunting rock formations in what is now Medicine Bow National Forest. Hiking, climbing, and camping are three ways to enjoy the solitude and scenery.
(307-745-2300)

I got these out of a Rand McNally Atlas, 2006 version.

Looks like you end up in Portland; that's not very far from the ECETI ranch, about 2 hours if my memory is correct.
