Hood, from the Painted Hills of Eastern Oregon to the shimmering blue of Crater Lake in Southern Oregon, Oregon is a stunningly beautiful state. Coastline, rivers, mountains, high desert, sagebush plains, rural farmland, redwood forest – it’s all here. And more. Even Oregon’s cities, Portland being the largest, are scenic, and many of the larger cities are situated along a river and feature greenspaces galore.
Against this backdrop of natural beauty, Oregon has an amazing array of outdoor recreational opportunities to love: hiking, biking, climbing, camping, snow sports, whale watching, fishing, gold panning, berry picking, golf, kiteboarding, whitewater rafting . . . we could go on and on.
