|Now more than ever we seek the Great Outdoors. But once
you get more precise than everywhere outside, identifying favorite
aspects of the Great Outdoors becomes subjective. The Douglas-Fir
National Monument should exist both because it is representative of
so much of the Great Outdoors of Oregon, and because it has its own
superlative examples of a great outdoors experience.

|| What follows here are some of the Friends' favorite
responses when someone asks us "What is most scenic about the Doug?"
Some are easy to find, others are more challenging. Some may meet
anyone's definition of great, others may seem more arguable.
| Like every other aspect of the Doug, there is beauty
all around you, when you open your eyes to it. You need to visit to
take in the true greatness.
Visit these pages, and let them draw you to visit the Doug. Visit
with care, and don't hesitate to let us know what your favorites
