The area is known as a recreational mecca for mountain biking, hiking, rock climbing, horseback riding, white water rafting, kayaking, and fly fishing, plus winter sports including skiing, snowboarding, dog- sledding, and snowmobiling. Not to mention the annual Sisters rodeo! West of the Cascades, the Willamette Valley is known for its premier Pinot Noir. As Oregon’s leading wine region, it is home to over 700 wineries. The Willamette Valley also boasts luscious blackberries, and some even grow in the wild. Oregon has a highly diverse agricultural industry with more than 250 commodities, from wheat and cattle, to fruits and vegetables and berries, to Christmas trees. Many farmers and ranchers use conservation- minded ranching practices and sustainable agriculture methods. In 1977, the Kiger Mustang was discovered in a remote area of Beatty’s Butte in southeast Oregon. This unique breed

Oregon is home to more than 10 billion trees on forest service land. Although some trees were lost in forest fires, Oregon’s State Department of Forestry promotes reforestation as well as sustainable forestry practices for the state’s huge timber industry. Reforestation, along with a significant amount of rainfall particularly west of the Cascade Mountains, combine to perpetuate Oregon’s signature green look. Many out-of-staters associate Oregon with rain, and the Oregon coast does in fact average 70-80 inches of rainfall a year. However some parts of central and eastern Oregon have dry climates. For example, popular Bend, Oregon and its neighboring community of Sisters, pivotally located at the eastern base of the Cascades, average 300 days of sunshine

Oregon’s population was estimated to be 4.233 million in 2023. The population has increased about 8% over the last 10 years. Oregonians themselves may prefer that outsiders stay away and leave this pristine state to its own, but Oregon provides a multitude of factors to lure people. For starters, Oregon is one of only five states in the US that has no sales tax. In California, sales tax rates range from 7.25% to over 10% in some out-lying areas. Sales tax applies to everything from gas, clothing, discretionary purchases, and restaurant meals. The absence of sales tax can add significantly to the bottom line for every household. And although Oregon does have state income tax, the top marginal tax rates are lower than California’s rates. Oregon offers a range of diversity — from its 363 miles of coastline to the year-round snow capped peaks of Mt. Hood to the raging waters of the Roger River to the rich

possesses characteristics of the original Spanish Mustang. Before the Kigers were found, some of these Spanish lines were thought to be extinct. The remaining Kiges have been protected since the 1980’s, and continue to reside in the Kiger Gorge in the Steens Mountains. In spite of soaring appreciation over the last decade, costs of home ownership in Oregon remain below California housing costs,which sendsmany Californians north! The housing market in Oregon suffers from the same phenomenon that is found throughout the USA: low housing supply relative to demand. As a land of great beauty and diversity, many opportunities await those who follow the trail to Oregon!
