Driving around the highways south of Milwaukie, I repeatedly saw an End of Oregon Trail sign. I vaguely remember having played a game called The Oregon Trail (paid link), but I don't know exactly what "Oregon Trail" is, so I looked it up. Oregon Trail is a 2170-mile wagon route between Independence, MO and Oregon City, OR, traveled by some of the earlier pioneers that settled in the west. Given its historic importance, after completing my geocaching mission, I decided to spend part of my last two days to visit Oregon City.
Elevator, Artwork, and Oddities
My evening tour of Oregon City was entirely guided by three geocaches:
- Going Up brought me to Oregon City Municipal Elevator.
- OC Downtown Artwork highlights some of the outdoor sculptures.
- Oddities & Commodities showcases oddball Oregon City trivia.
