Commenter Erik pointed me toward this gorgeous time-lapse video, created during six months of camping all over Oregon. The cinematographers visited
…the Columbia River Gorge, Mt Hood, Mt Jefferson, the Southwestern Coast, the Alvord Desert, Leslie Gulch, Blue Mountains, Crater Lake, Eagle Cap Wilderness, Deschutes River, and more. We’re proud to have touched all four corners of the state; however Oregon is the kind of place that the more you see, the more places there are to still discover.
Yes, it is. I lived there for 30 years and haven’t come close to seeing it all. But I think achieving that would take more than one lifetime. For now, this is a lovely reminder…and a great way to showcase Oregon’s beauty to people who have never been there.
I don’t need to say “HD and full screen,” do I? Because it really is necessary for this one.
EDIT: Holy moly! I just watched this again and now I know why people are cheering in the background at 2:23. They’re seeing the freaking aurora borealis!! I have never seen it in Oregon! What incredible luck for the cinematographers. (And not for me! grumble grumble)
