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’s pioneer roots are an inextricable part of our state’s identity, and the eponymous Oregon Trail played a huge role in shaping the Beaver State as we know it today. In Oregon, there are numerous places where intrepid explorers can literally follow the infamous wagon trail’s route, gaining invaluable insight and perspective along the way. Offering a wholly immersive experience, the Oregon Trail Auto Trail is easily the most accessible way to experience the historic route. Clocking in around 400 miles and six hours of drive time, the Oregon stretch of this route absolutely belongs on your bucket list.
