9 things every oregon native knows to be true… I gotta say this guy pretty much nails it.

Backcountry Breakfast

I’ve been pretty burned out on the freeze dried breakfast options for backpacking lately, so I was like “fuck it, I’m doing pancakes and bacon.”

I used the foodsaver to package the bacon and butter and strategically placed them next to the water bladder in my pack to keep things cool. Gotta say it worked out quite well. It’s more weight to carry, but bacon and pancakes with real maple syrup before hitting the trail? I say hell yes!

Table Rock Wilderness - Oregon

Some late summer fun in the Oregon Cascades. The wildflowers may be gone, but so are the mosquitos and the crowds. :)

I like big buttes and I cannot lie.

Upper Twin Lake - Bull of the Woods Wilderness - Oregon

Eight miles in from the pansy lake trailhead, upper twin lake is a great place to take a swim after a nice hike.

Known for its big trees, Oregon boasts one giant that stands high above the others: the Doerner Fir. Managed by the Bureau of Land Management in Oregon’s Coast Range, the mighty Doerner Fir is the world’s tallest Douglas fir – a towering 327 feet tall, 11.5 feet in diameter, and over 450 years old. 

Winding roads take travelers through some of the most valuable forests in the nation to the Doerner Fir Trail, 50 miles from Coos Bay in Oregon’s Coast Range mountains. Check out a short film about the Doerner Fir on BLM Oregon/Washington’s YouTube channel
