- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
We moved to La Grande, OR in September 2010. We ultimatley came here because my husband got a job at EOU but we made the final decision to move to La Grande for a variety of other reasons. We came from Laramie, WY where both of us became adults and in a sense figured out what we wanted in life. So we had an idea of what we wanted and chose La Grande because it matched up with many of those things. We wanted a place close to outdoor activities; walking, hiking, cycling, fishing, and skiing. We also wanted to live in a town where you can walk or ride you bike to work. We also wanted a farmer's market, brew pub, and a downtown that was not a bunch of run down buildings. I feel that we've found all these things in La Grande. Plus, the people here are amazing. They are SO nice and welcoming and they come from a variety of backgrounds. So far, we really love our experience in Eastern Oregon and hope to be able to stay!
