Happy birthday, Oregon!

Every year we celebrate Oregon’s birthday with a suitable greeting, paired with a view of our fair state.  Some years the view is of an icon such as Mount Hood or Crater Lake.  For Oregon’s 163rd birthday last week, with the design assistance of our friends at Incubate Design, we chose an image of the Columbia River in an era before dams had tamed it, seen from an unusual viewpoint . . . . similar to how we advise our clients.  Happy birthday, Oregon!
