We’ve traveled throughout the Portland region and found some remarkable locations with stunning displays of wildflowers and lush meadows. Originally we intended to make a list of the best ten spots, but somehow that list was one adventure too short, so here’s a list of the best eleven. You’ve probably heard of some of the locations, such as the famed Dog Mountain on the Washington side of the Columbia River Gorge, but others will hopefully be new to you and spark some late spring or early summer outdoor wanderlust. Either way, pack your bags, fold up that picnic blanket, and head outside as we’re sure you’ll find these wildflower spots truly relaxing and soul replenishing!
