ONLY in OREGON, Natural and Manmade Landmarks and Oddities
by Christine Barnes
Photography by Jerry Barnes

Wind your way along the coastline, over the mountains, and into the high desert...


There are landmarks and then there are LANDMARKS -- places that make this 96,000 square-mile patch of America so special to so many.

Since Statehood on February 14, 1859, Oregonians have been searching, discovering, creating, and sometimes destroying these treasures. Within these 104 pages you will find the "realm of the cavement"; a park with an underground whale that spouts water every minute; a cattle ranch turned cult compound turned teen camp; a memorial honoring a "Merry Prankster"; and vast lava fields once used by NASA as test terrain for moon-based astronauts.


Collected here are nearly one hundred ONLY IN OREGON destinations -- from the quirky and obscure to the well known, plus little factoids and extra bits of information on each. These are places that demonstrate the unique character of Oregon and its inhabitants -- natural wonders, manmade wonders, and others that just make you wonder.
