I love how vastly different the terrain here in Oregon is. From our little piece of rain forest paradise to the mountains and hillsides, to the desert and more lakes and even snowy peaks! One thing you can count on, even in the more desert-like areas, is that there is always water somewhere nearby.
This gorgeous shot of Bend, Oregon is by Ana Peter. I love the beauty of this space washed in that golden sunshine. Bend and some of the larger cities are a bit more pricey than the rest of Oregon – housing-wise – but you get a lot more conveniences with a larger city.
