You seem to have missed that Oregon has a nicely active rattlesnake
population (including, oddly enough, one hill between Stayton and Lyons on
Hwy 22 as well as a hill outside of Eugene), and I'm pretty sure we've got
brown recluse spiders around here somehere. The Willamette Valley and Coast
do not comprise the whole of Oregon.
I definitely agree with you about the coastline - especially the Columbia
River bar, home of the USCG National Motor Lifeboat School.

A railfan approaches a grade crossing hoping that there will be a train.
