To rosiegirl: Oregon is a place of

  • great beauty and stunning contrasts, but what interests me most is the independence of Oregonians. People think of Montana and Wyoming as being independent; but actually they cling rather closely to a more single POV, Oregon follows its own drummer. I keep trying to put explain it to myself, but I suppose that is the whole point; you can't describe the complexities of such independent people simply.

    Oregonians are more inclined to be independent. It's much different than the pride of the Texan or the busyness of the Californian; when people find themselves in Oregon it seems they just get down to the business of...being. The nice thing about Oregon is that whether your family rolled up in a covered wagon, or you just stopped the car 5 min. ago, you can claim yourself an "Oregonian" as long as you profess it's a beautiful place. :)
    I hope you have a nice day!
