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.
Nestled in a forest on the Oregon Coast, untold treasures sit hiding in plain sight, just waiting to be discovered and admired. The Cathedral Tree is one such special treasure. Standing some 200 feet tall and estimated to be 300-years-old, this Sitka spruce is Mother Nature’s most marvelous roadside attraction; a natural wonder waiting at the end of a short-and-sweet, 1.6-mile hike. Come and traverse the forests of the North Oregon Coast on an immensely scenic trail that unfolds like a real-life fairy tale.
