Old Growth Trees at Mary’s Peak in the Oregon Coast Range
Hey everybody, my latest state-by-state roundup of the top ten parks for the Guardian just went live! This month I’m featuring one of my favorite states: Oregon! Oregon was the first place I lived after college and it will always hold a special place in my heart. Check out my top 10 list here.
Also check out my previous top ten lists for California, Nevada, Arizona and Utah. It’s a tough gig, but somebody’s gotta do it. 😉

Wow, congratulations! That’s awesome!
I’ve been to about half the places you listed, and might have to make a trip down south to visit some of the rest. What gorgeous, well-chosen photos from some of the ones I’ve visited!
When are you doing Washington?

Living the dream.
I’m saving this post for future reference. We’ve been to many national parks and monuments in the west, but none in Oregon or Washington. We’ll soon be on the road, maybe just a week or two at a time to get the process started. We will possibly head to WA and OR first, since they are new to us and relatively close, but the time is coming for longer outings. Safe journeys to you. Carol
