Individualistic, eccentric and freethinking: A unique mix that’s intrinsically “Made in Oregon.” These traits belong not just to the people of this diverse and dynamic state, but also to the landscape itself. From volcanic Crater Lake to the majestic High Cascades to the perilous Pacific coastline, Oregon is a state of staggering natural beauty. From Lewis and Clark’s search for “land’s end” to the thousands of emigrants who arrived via the Oregon Trail, the state has always attracted adventurers and tenacious travelers, who keep Oregon’s spirit of adventure alive today. This is the third of seven programs from Smithsonian Channel’s epic series of the nation’s most treasured landmarks.Smithsonian Channel logo
