HOSPITALIST CAREERS IN OREGON
The Beaver State
The state of Oregon has one of the most diverse landscapes of any state in the Union, with its towering, thick forests, arid scrublands, wide prairies, deserts and scenic Pacific coastline. Oregon lies in the northwest section of the USA, bordered by the ocean, and the states of California, Washington, Idaho and Nevada. Along its northern boundary lies the Columbia River, and its area encompasses the fertile Willamette Valley and two mountain ranges (Pacific Coast and Cascade) where lift-serviced alpine skiing is offered throughout the year.
Most of Oregon's countryside, from beaches and valleys to mountain peaks, is unspoiled, and the state has been dubbed 'God's country'. The state boasts natural attractions like Hell's Canyon, the deepest river-carved gorge in northern America, as well as more than 6,000 lakes (including famous Crater Lake, deepest lake in the USA) and more than a hundred thousand miles of rivers and streams. In addition more than half of the state is covered in natural forest. This makes it a delight for nature lovers, although its merits as a tourist destination are somewhat marred by an over-abundance of rainy days.
Oregon's climate is generally moderate, divided into east and west by the Cascade Mountain Range. The mountains block the moist winds blowing in from the sea, which moderates the temperature and brings heavy rainfall to the western part of the state, where most of the main cities are situated. The east is drier and has more extreme temperatures. Temperatures range from 45°F (7°C) in winter and 68°F (20°C) in summer along the coastal belt, and 25°F (-4°C) to 78°F (26°C) in the eastern part of the state. Heavy snowfalls are common in the Cascades in winter. - iexplore.com
