As we wind down another year of exploring Oregon’s great outdoors, I look back on a few of my favorite Oregon winter adventures. As I look back on these adventures, I continue to be amazed by how can one place offer such variety of wonderful places and exciting outdoor activities.

Tell us what you think. Did we miss any of your favorite adventures?

Have a wonderful holiday and don’t forget to get out there and explore Oregon!
