About the Location:

The Pacific Northwest is a beautiful area that experiences all four seasons. The area, located less than an hour from skiing and situated near numerous national forests, is ideal for an outdoor enthusiast. It sits on the edge of one of the largest, enclosed circular valleys in the United States, with over a million acres of fertile soil surrounded by snow-capped mountain peaks and offers a unique blend of country-casual and urban culture, thanks in part to the presence of Eastern Oregon University.
