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.
Here in the Beaver State, there’s nothing better than a day on the trails, and Northern Oregon offers some of the absolute best hiking in the state. Tucked away in an old-growth forest of the Salmon-Huckleberry Wilderness, there’s an area that’s best described as a real-life Garden of Eden. The Salmon River Trail in Oregon leads to beautiful waterfalls and several emerald lagoons, for a hiking experience that’s positively perfect.
