Photos of Oregon













Oregon is a beautiful state! The rugged coast with cliffs falling into the sea and large jagged rocks jutting up from the water's surface produces stunning scenery. Inland there are a multitude of beautiful hiking trails and a greater density of beautiful waterfalls than anyone can find anywhere. Neap tides on the seashore reveal beautiful anemones and starfish and its sometimes possible to see baby seals sunning themselves. This page has photos of the seashore, lighthouses, hiking trails, animal life, and waterfalls. Larger versions of these photos of Oregon can be viewed by using a mouse rollover or by using the Slideshow below. See everything TheWorldinLight has to offer at Destinations and Topics.
