Here's your chance to poke around some of the out-of-the-way areas of the state. The Oregon Scenic County Images section of the Oregon Historical County Records Guide now features over 3,200 photographs showing every corner of Oregon.

The images are as varied as they are numerous. Of course, subjects include the often-photographed sites such as Mt. Hood, Crater Lake, and the Oregon Coast. But most of the images depict more remote places such as Leslie Gulch in the backcountry of Malheur County, Hells Canyon on the Idaho border, and the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument.

Along the way, there are plenty of images of water features such as rivers, lakes, and waterfalls. Geologic highlights such as the Painted Hills, the Pillars of Rome, and Steens Mountain are prominent. Also represented are man-made structures such as historic buildings, churches, barns, bridges, covered bridges, and wind turbines. Public art makes a showing too, including statues, murals, and even a bit of whimsy.

So, take some time to explore parts of Oregon that you have never seen or to revisit areas that still offer fond memories. Use the images to scout out your next vacation or to prove to out of state friends and relatives that Oregon has more colors than just green and more weather forecasts than just cloudy with rain.

The individual 72 dpi images displayed on this guide may be used for free by individuals and businesses as long as proper citations are given (see details). If you need high resolution copies for publications, posters, or similar uses, we've got that covered too. Oregon residents can purchase 300 dpi TIFF images for only 20 dollars each with no additional use fees or royalties (see details). Non-Oregon residents pay 25 dollars per image. An online order form makes the process easy.
