Oregon's Rugged Country
Oregon’s Rugged Country celebrates agriculture, outdoor adventure and a rich history. Follow a food trail to see fertile farms that produce everything from wheat to watermelons. The Rocks District AVA grows some of the best grapes in the Northwest, and hops for craft brews and grains for spirits also spring from this soil. In Pendleton, a rich Native American heritage meets cowboy and ranching culture, and wool and whiskey have grown to commended brands. Did we mention a nationally acclaimed rodeo? Umatilla National Forest is an outdoor enthusiast’s playground. Miles of rolling hills call for cyclists and riverfront adventure along the Columbia River.
