Grant's Getaways: Outdoor Adventures with Oregon's Grant McOmieby Grant McOmie
Synopses & Reviews
"When I was a boy, I fell in love with long distance. Not the telephone kind, but the dust-filled lanes and rambling asphalt roads that enticed a small-town kid from central Oregon to explore this region more than forty years ago." For Portland's KATU Channel 2 television personality Grant McOmie, the romance of the road hasn't worn off yet. Now he brings all the charm and adventure of his popular television segments to you in a beautifully photographed, take-along book. Family-focused and easily accessible, GRANT'S GETAWAYS takes you to the wildlife, wildflowers, waterfalls, and winding roads that make the Pacific Northwest so wonderfully unique. Photographer Steve Terrill, well known for his stunning landscape and activity photography, provides photos that go above and beyond the typical "guide book" shots. Organized by seasons and regions, all trips can be made from Portland on a tank of gas. Travel tips and access information are provided. This book will inspire you to explore getaways far and near throughout the year.
