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.
It’s good to be a dog in Oregon. From our dog-friendly beaches and parks to pup-friendly hotels and resorts, there’s no shortage of fun adventures for folks and their furry BFFs here in the Beaver State. And if you’ve ever dreamed of having an off-leash adventure with your pup, there are some spectacular treks where you can do just that. So review your commands (you’ll want to make sure your pup is under voice control at all times), fill up your water bottles, and hit the trails on these off-leash hikes in Oregon.
Here are a few other things to keep in mind when going off-leash with your dog: first, do not let your dog approach other hikers or dogs on the trail, even if he’s friendly. Always ask permission before having your pup sniff out a fellow canine walker. When you approach others on the trail, put your dog in a “sit,” or leash them. And, of course, be sure to pick up after your pup, and pack it out — don’t leave anything behind on the trails!
