Four days ago seventeen people were shot to death at a Florida high school, fourteen students and three staff. It infuriates me that there's any debate about what needs to be done: ban the AR-15 and other assault rifles along...

Oregon is extraordinarily fortunate. The state ranks at or near the top when it comes to being green. This color dominates the countryside, mountains, towns and cities. It’s particularly vivid along Portland’s tree-lined streets and throughout her forested hills. The post

Walking back to our rural home after a dog walk, I was struck by how a leafless oak tree at the edge of our yard looked against the late afternoon sky. It was a lesson in fractals, those amazing shapes...

What is it about waterfalls that makes them so captivating? My husband, Gary, and I took a Southern Oregon waterfall tour with the kids and it was one of our best trips of all time.

Bend has established itself as an ideal setting for three sports in one day, thanks to the proximity of Mt. Bachelor's spring skiing and the region's high-desert climate, which offers a moderate year-round temperature as well as an average of 160 sunny days per year.
