Nature in Oregon

The state of Oregon is located in the Western United States and belongs to the Pacific States of the United States. The territory of the state of Oregon is 255,026 km 2 (9th place in terms of area among the states of the USA).

Oregon borders the states of Washington to the north, Idaho to the east, and California and Nevada to the south. In the west, the lands of the state are washed by the waters of the Pacific Ocean.

The state of Oregon is in the US Pacific Time Zone.

The natural conditions of Oregon are extremely diverse, here you can see the ocean coast and high mountains, fertile river valleys and desert salt marshes.

There are several major physiographic regions within the state: the Cascade Mountains, the Coast Range and the ocean coast, the Klamath Mountains (Siskaya), the Willamette Valley, the Columbia Plateau, the Blue Mountains, and the High Desert.

Along the ocean coast of Oregon, the Coastal (or Oregon) Range stretches for more than three hundred kilometers from north to south. The highest mountain in the range is Marys Peak (1250 meters above sea level).

In the central regions of the state, dividing it into eastern and western parts, the Cascade Mountains rise. Several volcanoes are located here, including the highest mountain in Oregon – Mount Hood (3,429 meters above sea level), which is considered the potentially most dangerous volcano in the state. The second highest mountain in Oregon is Jefferson (3,199 meters), the third, fourth and fifth – located next to each other “Three Sisters” (“Southern Sister” – 3,157 meters, “Northern” – 3,074 meters and “Middle” – 3062 meters above sea level). Around Newberry Volcano (2,435 meters) is one of Oregon’s many reserves – the Deschates National Forest.

Another well-known and popular among tourists reserve Oregon, the only National Park in the state, founded back in 1902 (the sixth of all US National Parks), is located in the south of the state in the Mount Mazama region. This is Crater Lake National Park, famous for its transparency and blue water.

More than seven and a half thousand years ago, as a result of the eruption, the Mazama volcano was partially destroyed, while a huge caldera was formed – a depression on the top of a mountain, the depth of which exceeds six hundred and fifty meters. This depression gradually filled with water, forming Crater Lake (Crater Lake). The dimensions of the Crater Lake are about 9.6 km long and about 8 km wide, its area exceeds 53 km 2. Crater Lake is the deepest in the United States (up to 594 meters), while the average depth of the lake is about 350 meters. Not a single river flows into Crater Lake, located on the top of the mountain, evaporation is compensated only by rain and snowfall.

In southwestern Oregon (and northwestern California) are the Siskayu Mountains, which are part of the Klamath mountain range. The highest peak of these mountains in Oregon is Ashland (2,296 meters). The Siskiyou Mountains, and especially their western slopes facing the Pacific Ocean, receive a lot of rainfall and are therefore covered with dense forests, mostly coniferous.

In the northern part of Oregon, the Pacific coast is mostly sandy beaches with occasional sandstone cliffs and numerous coastal shoals. In the central and especially southern parts of the state, the mountains come much closer to the ocean, there are many more rock outcrops, bays and bays. There are six US government protected areas on the coast that form the Oregon Coast National Wildlife Refuge complex.
