Oregon Travel


I’m hoping to get my Oregon Travel blog going soon with tips and tricks about great vacation stuff here in Oregon. One of the things I *always* notice after travelling is how nice it is to come home to the great cultural and outdoor attractions within a few hours of my house here in lovely Talent Oregon

We’ve got some good basic detail about Oregon at the Online Highways Oregon Travel section but I’m hoping to do a more personalized version of this. Some will appear at the Online Highways travel blog but that travel blog will be focusing more on destinations around the globe and not digging into Oregon in great depth.

Oregon is home to several great regions. The state defines them like this but I’m going to be a little more precise at the Oregon Travel blog and try to focus in on more of a single city or destination basis.

I’ve already covered some Oregon Travel information in these Travel Highways and History posts but I have quite a bit of information, pictures, and adventures to share in the future. Oregon is one of the few places where you can enjoy skiing on peaks over 2 miles high, smashing surf and sea, and a round of golf all in the same day. (No, it would not be a relaxing day!)….

    I would also like to hear more about southern Oregon which is where I grew up. I have been gone for a long time and haven’t written about it on my website yet. I am waiting until we can take a trip back next spring. I now live in England.

    Shhhhh…Joe, we don’t want anyone to know !!!!…we all know it rains here all the time, horrible weather, the scenery is beautiful but you can never see it through all the clouds and rain… 😉

    OK Paul, I’ll send everybody to NYC where the sun always beautifully shines off the hot pavement.

    It did, for only the second time in 25 years, pour on us during our annual Rogue River trip the 3rd weekend in August – torrential buckets of huge drops began at midnight and continued unabated until nearly dawn, highlighting the folly of the 5 in our group of 13 who had opted not to bring a tent as “it never rains on the Rogue in August”….but it is the most wonderful of river floats.
