Oregon Unforgettable (China Beach cover)

photography by Dennis Frates

  • Nature reigns in Oregon, from the lush forests to the snow-clad peaks of the Cascade Range, from the high desert to the expansive coastline. In Oregon Unforgettable, award-winning photographer Dennis Frates takes you on a scenic journey from the liveliest cities to the most remote mountain tops. Through spectacular color photography, experience the crystal blue waters of Crater Lake, the warm hues of the Painted Hills, the bustle of life in Portland, and the mighty waters of the Columbia River like never before. Witness the tranquility of gardens and vineyards and the cheerful clamor of busy docks. See Timberline Lodge at Christmas, the Willamette Valley during harvest, and alpine meadows in full bloom. Come see why Oregon is a state that is truly unforgettable.
