We've had a fantastic time in Central Oregon, but one of the best parts of the trip was the stunning and expansive views along the way. Our travels revealed that Oregon is a diverse and unique state with a new view and adventure around every turn.

We arrived at our Sunriver house with the taste of maple bars on our tongue, the chill from Hood snow in our hands, and the coarse Smith rocks in our sandles. I reflected on our drive and realized there was truth to Ralph Waldo Emerson's saying, "Life is the journey, not a destination."
