Oregon is a state in the Pacific Northwest section of the nation; it is bordered by the Pacific Ocean on the west which greatly affects its weather and Washington on the north with California and Nevada on the south. Its climate is just as varied as its northern neighbor Washington as it has a very wet, humid climate in the west with a very arid desert region in the southeast part of the state.
The mighty Columbia river forms the border between Oregon and Washington; it provided a bountiful supply of salmon to Indians, bears and eagles and then the settlers who were able to live on the wildlife in the area until they get their homesteads productive. In the 20th century, massive dams were built on the river which provided cheap electricity to the region and allowed for rapid economic growth but have also decimated the salmon population. Today, the salmon catch off the coast of Oregon has dwindled to almost zero.
