Like I did with the "Colorado Beauty and Places" thread, I'm now starting one for Oregon. Since I don't want this to be about me, like in the Colorado thread, I invite anyone with knowledge or pictures of Oregon to post here. We (the wife and I) have an opportunity to take a volunteer position in the Grants Pass, Oregon area at a Christian retreat. We will be moving our RV to the Cascade Mountain Ranch Retreat to park on the 50 acre ranch and serve as hosts. The Ranch is a former facility used as something similar to a Boy's Ranch, but after people there got to going after them, most of the churches gave up on trying to keep up with the legalities of a facility for boys or girls. It is now being used as a Christian retreat for family reunions, large church gatherings, weddings and receptions and such. So, since we won't be arriving up there until about mid-April, I don't have any photos to post yet. I used to have relatives in Grants Pass, and the last time we were up there was way back in 1969. Thus, I don't have any pictures yet. We are looking forward to seeing Crater Lake again, as well as the Oregon coastline. I also ran across a place called the Painted Hills that is in northern-central Oregon, so we're hoping to get the time to travel around Northern California, Oregon, and maybe even Southern Washington. Fortunately, our work as hosts will be part time, so we should be able to get around quite a bit. So, please take the time, if you will, to post pictures of interesting places in that area or tell me of interesting places or things to see.
