It can seem like Oregon’s always posing for a picture.

Those surging waterfalls might appear staged, but trust us, that’s just how they are. Our misty coastline looks like it stretches as far as the eye can see because it really does. These dramatic river canyons aren’t trying to impress you, but it’s okay if you think that. Just give yourself a little pinch every now and then so you know that Oregon isn’t faking it and you’re really here.
