From majestic mountains to tranquil forests, Oregon’s beauty has many facets. This year we traveled through the state again to document its beauty as best we could.

These photos included a guide to the best beaches on the southern Oregon coast and an easy hike outside Portland. They were part of a tour of the mountain town of Joseph and the Applegate Valley wine region. .

What’s the big point?I have everytime Need to explore further.

Even if you feel like you’ve been anywhere in Oregon, you almost certainly have another new place to explore. Also, when the scenery changes due to the change of seasons or natural disasters, old places always look new. Our changing perspective also affects our experience of the place, allowing us to rediscover Oregon again and again.

These images celebrate the place we call home and we hope they inspire you to explore Oregon again next year. , here are our favorite shots of 2022, even if you want to soak it all up again.
