Yes, Oregon can boast of o?ering riding scenery to match almost anything you’ll ?nd in the rest of the country—forest, desert, mountains, rivers, beaches—but here’s a ride that you might not ?nd anywhere else. It features a roller-coaster route past, around, and between hundreds of giant white wind machines. Besides the gentle beauty of new green wheat ?elds rippling in the wind, there’s the sublimely surreal, Gulliver’s Travels experience of riding in the literal shadows of these graceful behemoths.
