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 Oregon, summer seems to happen instantaneously, and you’ll suddenly find yourself sweating bullets while hiking your favorite trail. Happily, we have an abundance of options for staying cool *and* enjoying our favorite outdoor recreation… 238 options, to be exact! With 238 named waterfalls across the state, Oregon is flush with flowing cascades, many of which also double as swimming holes. Cool off this summer with a visit to these seven Oregon waterfalls, all of which offer refreshing waters and resplendent scenery.
