Overview

The diversity of ocean beaches and high desert, majestic mountains and lush valleys, and—-of course, the scenic Columbia River Gorge are what makes Oregon both unique and beloved. Rich Schafer's magnificent images convey familiar scenes and evocative places from all across the Beaver State, including the undulating wheat fields of Central Oregon, the crystallline blue waters of Crater Lake National Park, colorful expanses of wildflowers in the Cascade Range, and the dramatic beauty of Multnomah Falls. From Cannon Beach to the Wallowa Mountains, from the hillside orchards of the Hood River Valley to the volcanic monoliths along the Oregon coast, from Portland and Eugene's cityscapes to Eastern Oregon's isolated grandeur, the splendor of this state is captured in this inspiring book.
