Corners of Oregon

Oregon takes geography, climate and landscapes in many different directions. There’s a temperate rainforest on the heavily timbered Coast Range, rolling green through the Willamette Valley’s mild-weathered bread and wine basket, colder high alpine temperatures along the spine of the snowcapped Cascade Range, a high desert oasis in Central Oregon and a true desert climate of southeastern Oregon. We’ve culled photos from readers’ amazing submissions over the course of 2014 to bring you this photographic tour. A special thanks to all of you who have sent us photos. Keep ‘em coming!
