Yeah, sorry about that. I wasn't sure how else to describe our state. We have it all here - mountains, oceans beaches, deserts. Great sites like Mt. Hood, Crater Lake (deepest lake in the US), Columbia gorge and river, even enjoy our neighbor's volcano (Mt. St. Helens) at times. Manmade goodies are Astoria column, Crown Point, Powell's City of Books. Then we have salmon, crabbing, hazelnuts and Moonstruck Chocolates. And no, Portland is not the state capitol; it's Salem.
