Summer is here! It’s a time when Oregon is blessed with long, sunshine-filled days, raging rivers, blooming flowers and fresh berries. What better way to celebrate summer than glorious adventures in Oregon’s outdoors?

This month, we’ve got great camping trip ideas, a chance to win a Bike and Brew Getaway and family friendly fishing, so dig out your fishing poles and slather on some sunscreen because the trout are out.

See you in Oregon, where we’re firing up the grill for this month’s lamb skewer recipe.

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.

    Hello, You asked how I think you are doing? Well, I think you doing real swell. We live on the Sunshine Caost of British Columbia, which is pretty sweet also, but gettin too busy. We love Oregon, for wonderful people, the heritage hotels we have stayed in, especially Wheeler, the different climatic zones, your lack of taxes compared to ourselves, inexpensive gas, to us, the scenery, but especially the wonderful friendly laid back people. Your folks are something like ourselves, kinda ho-dee-do-ho-dee-do. We have planned all our vacation time this year, but next year, plan on 2 weeks in Oregon/Idaho area. We will bring our 14 year old daughter on that trip, if she she still wants to travel with the fuddy duddies. I build Teardrop Trailers, so camping will be the plan. No hotels the next trip. Please keep sending me state updates on recreation. I have your guides already.
