O Is For Oregon
Oregon is where I live, in the north eastern part of the state. People think of Oregon as wet and green, but I live on the dry side of the state. It gets cold in the winter, but the days are usually sunny. When we get snow it usually only sticks around for a few days...by the time we're tired of dealing with snow, it's gone. Spring is windy and summer is hot. I am blessed to live in a beautiful state.
This is where I live...
The view from my backyard looking across the river to Hermiston Butte.
Here's a view of the backyard looking down to the Umatilla River taken this winter when we had frost.
Just east of Hermiston (about 30 miles) are the Blue Mountains. This is where we took our granddaughters camping and fishing last summer.
Oregon has a lot of public lands. The picture below is Hat Rock State Park on the Columbia River just a few miles from our house.
Wide open spaces and beautiful sunsets. I love that we have uninterrupted vistas.
I like to travel and enjoy visiting the big city, but I am always happy to come home.
