When Easterners with a desire for adventure heard the magic words "go west," they headed for Oregon country. Their sense of adventure lingers today in Oregon, where seven distinctive regions - the Coast, Portland Metro, Mt. Hood/Columbia River Gorge, the Willamette Valley, Southern Oregon, Central Oregon, and Eastern Oregon - represent a wealth of diverse climates, cultures and recreational opportunities.
The best thing about Oregon, U.S.A., is the wilderness and all the wildlife living in it. All one has to do to witness Oregon's beauty is to walk out the front door.
Oregon, which has more designated scenic byways and tour routes than any other state, is a dramatic land of many changes. From the rugged Oregon seacoast, to the high mountain passes of the Oregon Cascades, the lush greenery and magnificent waterfalls, the stony lava beds and Ponderosa pines of the high desert, Oregon's natural beauty is gorgeous. It's a place where people often find themselves roaming endlessly with no other goal than powdery slopes, lighthouse views or salmon run.
Many people, Oregonians included, take Oregon for granted. They need to take a step back, and realize what they truly have. Nothing beats Oregon's beautiful landscape and the serenity of its remote areas.
