There are lots of fun things I like to do near Eugene, Oregon, however 1 of my number one sites to visit is the national forest! The Willamette National Forest is located in the central part of Oregon about an fourth or two from Eugene. It has more than 1 million acres of designated as well as protected wilderness areas. There are also many natural waterways within the National Forest. The forest is named for the Willamette River. The forest stretches at least 100 miles as well as forms the barrier of the Cascade Range in Western Oregon. The Willamette National Forest is a fantastic locale to go hiking as well as fishing, especially when the weather is niceâ€¦ Last March, my friends as well as I went to the national forest for many afternoons. The people I was with and I took a tent, sleeping bags, as well as many afternoons worth of water as well as food. The forest was filled with butterflies that weekend. There were monarch butterflies all over the National Forest! My friends as well as I appreciated our time in nature. The people I was with and I bought recreational marijuana supplies from a shop in Eugene, before both of us went to the National Forest. The people I was with and I did not purchase any recreational marijuana supplies that needed to be smoked. The people I was with and I did not want to have any fires in the National Forest. Instead, both of us decided to buy marijuana vape pens from the dispensary. The marijuana vape pens required no fire as well as they are easy to use as well as relatively discrete! Even though it would have been nice to smoke a blunt or a joint, it was much easier as well as much safer to take a vape pen to the park.
