So much about Oregon aligns perfectly with my core values. There’s a focus on sustainability, recreation, wilderness and outdoor adventure. Localism is embraced, and there’s a good balance between doing business and creating a place where people want to live, balancing industry and sustainability. I couldn’t wait to visit!
As we planned our trip over the course of a few weeks, I kept adding more and more on to the itinerary. There’s just so much fun to be had in Oregon, so many beautiful and inspiring adventures I wanted to experience. In one week, we visited five of the 7 Wonders of Oregon: Crater Lake, Mt. Hood, Smith Rock, the Columbia River Gorge and the Oregon Coast. We went on trail runs, ski toured, visited countless breathtaking waterfalls, rock climbed, saw rainbows, skied off the summits of two volcanoes, Stand Up Paddleboarded and surfed. Here’s a look at a few of my favorite adventures from our trip.
Enjoying local Oregon cheese, crackers and hazelnuts from the top of Table Rock outside of Medford, the perfect place for a picnic.
I’ve always heard so many good things about the climbing at Smith Rock. I was so stoked to have the opportunity to sample the climbing myself.
I can’t say enough about the waterfalls! We saw so many lining the roads on our trip.
