Marked by volcanoes, abundant bodies of water, dense evergreen, and mixed forests, as well as high deserts and semi-arid shrublands, Oregon is one of the most geographically diverse states in the U.S. The state’s tallest point is Mount Hood which stands at 11,249 feet. The deepest lake in the United States is located in Crater Lake National Park. Crater Lake is 1,949 feet deep and is one of the cleanest and clearest lakes in the world. On the west side is 363 miles of coastline. Almost half of Oregon’s 61 million acres of land is forested divided in half almost evenly by the Cascade mountain range.
