Water

Our image collection was created in the summer (a year ago next Tuesday July 15th!), so quite a few of the photos feature water, a key part of an Oregon summer, for recreation, gardening, and as a key feature of our beautiful state.

Working with Animals

For many Oregonians, working with animals is a way of life. This week we're sharing just a few of many photos featuring people and animals. We'd also like to wish you and your family and friends a wonderful Thanksgiving!
