This month, we’ve got food on our minds – juicy berries, artisan cheese, organic brew – so it’s a good thing the Oregon Bounty celebration is just around the corner. Mark your calendar because we’ve got some exciting things planned – make sure you enter to win a Hot Air Balloon Getaway. Or how about winning an all-expenses paid week to experience the culinary job of your dreams?

All this gorgeous weather means it’s time to hit the links. Oregon is home to more than 200 public golf courses – and we’re talking amazing courses –  Bandon Dunes, Pumpkin Ridge, Running Y and other championship links designed by world-famous course architects.

Finally, we’re so excited about good food that we have TWO recipes this month – one stars the huckleberry and the other is all about fresh-from-the-vine tomatoes.

See you in Oregon, where we’re completing the Oregon 150 Challenge.

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.

    You are doing a fine job of selling the great state of Oregon. After reading this wonderful site, I am going to make Oregon a place to visit in the very near future…

    Keep up the good work…

    Thank you for all of the wonderful info on Oregon. We can’t wait to get there. We will be starting our trip in Portland and spending 10 days touring the state…not nearly enough time to do it justice. Since we will be there in late September, we will be anxious to see what you send us for fall.

    I am surprised not to see any mention of the Bite of Oregon taking place in Portland 8/7 – 8/9 at the downtown waterfront. Many local restaurants & Oregon wineries are represented.

    Nicely done! As a true Oregonian (born in Eugene 54 years ago), I appreciate that you show the wide variety that our state offers to visitors…in geography, events, sights, and terrain. We are truly in God’s country from “ski” line to “sea” line! Thanks for promoting us in such a fun, high quality style.
