There are 7 Wonders of the World, and not a single one of them is in Oregon. All we can figure is whoever came up with the list must have never set foot here. They must have never seen Mt. Hood or the grandeur of the Columbia River Gorge. They certainly didn’t explore the Oregon Coast. The exposed earth of the Painted Hills, Smith Rock’s towers of volcanic ash and the alpine peaks of the Wallowas were overlooked as well. Even Crater Lake, the deepest lake in North America, was left off their list. So we see your Wonders, world. And raise you 7 of our own.
And we invite you to not just see them, but experience them. Because our Wonders aren’t just for taking pictures of – to truly say you’ve seen our Wonders, you have to hike down from the scenic vista and feel them beneath your feet. Just remember: this is Oregon. So how you go about doing that is entirely up to you.
