There are lots of fun things to do near Eugene, Oregon, but one of my favorite places to visit is the national forest.
The Willamette National Forest is located in the central part of Oregon about an hour or two from Eugene.
It has more than 1 million acres of designated and protected wilderness areas. There are also several natural waterways within the National Forest. The forest is named for the Willamette River. The forest stretches at least 100 miles and forms the barrier of the Cascade Range in Western Oregon. The Willamette National Forest is a great place to go hiking and fishing, especially when the weather is nice. Last March, my friends and I went to the national forest for several days. We took a tent, sleeping bags, and several days worth of water and food. The forest was filled with butterflies that weekend. There were monarch butterflies all over the National Forest. My friends and I enjoyed our time in nature. We purchased recreational marijuana supplies from a shop in Eugene, before we went to the National Forest. We didn’t purchase any recreational marijuana supplies that needed to be smoked. We didn’t want to have any fires in the National Forest. Instead, we decided to buy marijuana vape pens from the dispensary. The marijuana vape pens required no fire and they are easy to use and relatively discrete. Even though it would have been nice to smoke a blunt or a joint, it was much easier and much safer to take a vape pen to the park.
