I've always wanted to visit Sweden ever since this girl came to Oregon to visit... lol.

I imagine it's probably similar scenery to the NW United States, but, I love this scenery so it'd be great to experience it there too.

Image
Oregon coast (Yachats, OR) Amazing crab fishing right off the beach in the Pacific Ocean.

Image
A view of the Oregon coast as seen from Highway 101. (Yachats, OR)

Image
Fishing in Newport Bay, OR... didn't catch anything but a beer buzz.

Image
Newport Bay, OR

Image
Tidepools in the bay at Garabaldi, OR

Image
Hells Canyon, Oregon. Deeper than the Grand Canyon, by 700 meters.

Image
North Fork River, my favorite swimming hole on 90F days... that is ice cold mountain water... and there's tons of bikini girls.[/img]

Image
Harvesting camp firewood on the Columbia River (St Helen's, OR) P.S, that's not a paddle, that's a big piece of tree sticking out side of the boat lol.

Image
Small campfire on the river banks, St Helen's, OR.

Got a lot more, but this should do for now.
