Having lived in Oregon my entire life, I can say for certain that there are countless reasons to love this beautiful state in every season — but this is especially true in winter.
During the colder months, days may get shorter and chillier, but that doesn’t mean Oregon’s 7 Wonders are any less wonderful. In fact, many locals will tell you that you’ll experience them in a more intimate way: Crowds thin, trails clear and the pace of things slows. Meanwhile, the natural features remain amazingly beautiful, from the snowy mountain peaks to the gusty ocean shores to all of the wild deserts and forests and rivers in between.
So come along with me for a local’s tour of some of my favorite sights and destinations around the 7 Wonders during the snowy, frosty season.
