I can fully appreciate the fact that I've been living in a desert (southern California) when I come to a place like this. My first impression of Oregon is that it's so WET. There's lots and lots of green everywhere. Lots of trees and grasses and rivers, streams and lakes. It's like a jungle!
I went for a drive east of Eugene today and took a little hike to see some waterfalls. The air was misty and smelled so fresh and green.
