I write like it's my job - because it is! I have a Master's in English and love words: crossword puzzles, Scrabble games, Wordle, and, of course, good, old-fashioned books.
I'm a writer and editor at OnlyInYourState, and a contributing writer at Cincinnati Magazine. I love the Great Outdoors and am endlessly awestruck by this beautiful country of ours. Coffee keeps me going, yoga keeps me sane, my kids keep me grounded, and my writing keeps me inspired.
The Oregon State Parks are extraordinary, period. The Oregon State Park system is one of the most popular in the country, attracting over 51 million visitors each year to its 254 superlative parks. All of Oregon’s state parks are worthy of a visit; each and every one of them offers its own unique geography, geological features, climates (temperate rainforests in Oregon? You bet!), and experiences. But, today we’re playing favorites, which is why we’re naming Silver Falls State Park as *the best* state park in Oregon. This park is breathtakingly beautiful; it possesses many of the Beaver State’s unique features and wonders; and with an abundance of stellar trails and campsites, Silver Falls stands out as Oregon’s single best state park.
