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, camping is a year-round activity, and we’re always up for pitching a tent and spending a night in the Great Outdoors. But not all Beaver State campsites are open year-round; and while this can sometimes cramp our camping style, it also makes the perennial campgrounds all the more special. Which brings us to today’s adventure: the campsite at Wallowa Lake State Park in Oregon that’s nestled right by a beautiful Alpine lake, and is open to guests year-round!
