Welcome to Oregon!


Oregon has many beautiful places. There are tall mountains, small hills, and unusual caves. There are green forests and brown deserts. There is the Pacific Ocean. There are also lakes, rivers, waterfalls, and much more!

In this book, you will read about the “Seven Wonders of Oregon.” These are special places with interesting stories. At the end of the book, there are two more stories about places in Oregon. I hope that some day you can visit them all.

Welcome to Oregon! We’re glad you are here!
