Summers in Oregon are ripe with the season’s bounty and opportunities for outdoor adventure. Luckily, you CAN have it all in Oregon. Satisfy your inner daredevil and your inner gastronome in one fell swoop with a three-day raft trip through Hells Canyon on the  Snake River with Winding Waters River Expeditions. Your days will be filled with whitewater, fishing opportunities and the beautiful scenery of Eastern Oregon; your nights with decadent meals from Chef Benjamin Bettinger of Laurelhurst Market using local Eastern Oregon ingredients from places like Carman Ranch beef and Terminal Gravity Brewing. At night, you’ll rest at the cozy Chandler’s Inn Bed & Breakfast in Joseph.

Learn more details and reserve your spot on the raft at PlateandPitchfork.com.

about author Rhiannon West Chamberlain

Rhiannon is a native Oregonian who grew up exploring the nooks and crannies of the Oregon Coast and daydreaming in Powell’s City of Books. She now lives in NE Portland with her husband and her new baby boy and looks forward to teaching him to love Oregon as much as she does. Rhiannon attended both the University of Oregon and Portland State University, where she studied Journalism and Mass Media. She claims to ‘bleed green’ and happily cheers for both the Ducks and the Vikings every chance she gets. In her free time, Rhiannon enjoys sipping Oregon Pinot, finding new restaurants, bargain hunting and trying new recipes – sometimes successfully. She has a child-like enthusiasm for trying new things and rediscovering old ones – such as skee-ball, mini golf, and big slides.
