My friend Harrison Zost and I flew to the West Coast for a week to explore Oregon. We traveled from Portland to Mt Hood and The Columbia River Gorge and through the Tillamook Forest to the breathtaking coastline. We camped in different state parks every night and stayed in a hostel in Portland where we met some fellow travelers. Our week was filled exploring this amazing state’s truly diverse landscape — we hiked through lush, moss-filled rain forests and up a few mountains. These are some of the photos from our journey.
