Meet Grant McOmie. Grant lived in Oregon for a long time before he realized he hadn’t seen enough of it. So he asked his fellow Oregonians for recommendations on where to go and what to see. He liked where he went and what he saw so much he decided to share what he found. We liked how he shared what he saw, so we asked him if we could share what he found here.
