From the Pacific Ocean and lush rain forests, to the high desert and the deepest canyon in the United States, Oregon is home to many stunning landscapes, none perhaps more breathtaking than it’s mountains.  John Muir once said, “The mountains are calling, and I must go.”  Oregonians are lucky to have several mountain ranges to explore, including the Cascades and Coastal Range.  Here are our favorite photos of some of Oregon’s stunning mountains.
