Oregon sure has aged gracefully. The forests remain plentiful and lush, the beaches are pristine and areas of serene high desert go untouched, if not undiscovered.

We hope you’ll come see for yourself. While you’re here, check out one of the 150th birthday bash celebrations we have planned. It’s sure to be a fun time!

Also this month, we have a fantastic giveaway to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, as well as a very special birthday recipe from Sweet Life Patisserie in Eugene.

See you in Oregon, where we’re taking a walk through Oregon’s history, and Crater Lake.

About the 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.
