The Magnificent Overlook In Oregon That’s Worthy Of A Little Adventure

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.
Oregon is full of unimaginably beautiful places: extraordinary nature scenes that will take your breath away. And while many of these wonders require a bit of effort to enjoy (an intense hike or carefully organized road trip, for example) there is one magnificent overlook in Oregon that simply asks travelers to take a detour. Located off a popular Oregon byway, Crown Point State Scenic Corridor and the Vista House offer the most incredible panoramas of the Columbia River Gorge. All you need to do to enjoy this scenery is veer off an exit ramp and be open to a little adventure.
