The sun in shining, the days are getting longer and flowers are blooming. It’s spring in Oregon!

This month, we’ve got the skinny on migrating whales and exotic birds, nature hikes that are close to the city and step-by-step instructions on Morel Mushroom and Asparagus Soup.

See you in Oregon, where we’re flipping through the new issue of Travel Oregon magazine!

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.

    I like the travel journal. At first I didn’t add the dates that we’ll be visiting and had to go through a lot of stuff. But when I got the hang of it, and with the locations listed, I was able to amass a few things we might like to do when we come to OR in two months.

    We really enjoy coming to Oregon. I have shown the wife a lot of beautiful spots and things to see and so. I was born in Washington and grew up in Amity, Tillamook, and Bandon Oreon. I love the emails and the magazines that we get. We both go through them and wish we were living there again.
    Thanks for the nice magazines and the great email news letters that we get.
