For a change of pace, I thought I might share some winter pictures from Oregon. Although I consider myself to be a Montanan, I originally came from Oregon and I know that many people who might view these pictures might never see the state. All of these images were from March 9, 2019.
The pictures I have are from all over the state and are from public webcams.
In terrain, Oregon is a lot like Montana, except that the mountains in Montana are the Rockies. There are two mountain chains in Oregon; the Cascades and the coastal range. Oregon also has a lot of shoreline on the Pacific Ocean and Montana obviously has no ocean shoreline.
There are a lot more people in Oregon than in Montana, but most of them live in or around the three largest cities; Eugene, Salem, and Portland. Because of this, you might get the impression that many of these pictures are very similar to pictures I’ve shared of Montana, and you’d be right.
To do it justice, it will take more than one post to give an idea of what Oregon is like. This first set focuses primarily on Southern Oregon.
