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.
You don’t have to look hard to find epic outdoor recreation in Oregon; our entire state is pretty much one big playground for adventure. There are, of course, tried-and-true places for outdoor recreation in Oregon: the Columbia River Gorge, Bend, the Wallowas, Silver Falls State Park, the entire Oregon Coast… the list goes on (and on). But there’s one place that quite literally stands apart from the rest; it’s located just a stone’s throw from Portland, but literally feels worlds away from this busy city. We’re talking about Sauvie Island, one of the largest river islands in the country, and the ultimate nature playground in Oregon.
Sauvie Island really is the ultimate nature playground in Oregon. When was the last time you had an adventure on this amazing island? This really is a place full of immense scenic beauty… and possibility for outdoor play!
