    Matt, That is a great trail, I have walked the full length, You are almost to the Beach in Rockaway, keep going!

  2. Dorinda from Mentor, Oh. says:

    Wow, Oregon is what I thought it would be. Luscious green and pretty.

      Dorinda…this is what it looks like at my house in Vancouver, WA too! Isn’t it GORGEOUS?? I love the area Matt is in and really, our whole area…gotta love the trees. :)

      • Karen Too says:

        This is what it looks like in my yard, too, here in the Catskills. There are little roads like this one all over the place up here, too.

        We are lucky to live in such beautiful areas, and to have them all over the entire country.

  3. Scott says:

    Oh WOW! I am planning on moving to Oregon, glad to see it is as beautiful as I imagined!!

  5. MN Roxanne says:

    Awesome… love how the ferns carpet the forest floor… and the shade of the trees must have felt good.

  6. Christa says:

    It’s so fun watching you get ever closer to me in Portland! You’ve seen so much of what Oregon has to offer so far — I love the high desert!– and you still have so much more lush greenery to see. Enjoy it, and if you need any PDX tips please let me know! You *must* eat at some food carts and stop by Powells. Oh, and a Voodoo Doughnut for energy!

  7. Theres that “green glow” we were talking about….I ♥ Oregon!

  8. Gigi says:

    I can almost imagine birds singing when I look at this pic.

  9. Jeff says:

    Trees, trees the beautiful tree’s.

  11. John in MI says:

    Beats the heck outta semis blazing by you.

  12. Candice In Alabama says:

    This makes me think so much of The Great Smoky Mountains!

    • Lisa in Goldsboro NC says:

      Me too Candice. My family and I have always vacationed in the mountains of NC. There is a beauty that can’t be experienced by picture. The sights and smells of the forest and all the wildlife. I am sure that there are similarities of the beautiful forests out west. Just love it.

  13. Janet says:

    Now that you have seen vast portions of this great country, do you truly understand the words and meanings behind “America the Beautiful”?

  14. Barb V from Michigan says:

    Looks so peaceful.
