Weekly Update 7/14/2016
We’re at Salem, OR!
Salem, seated in the Willamette Valley alongside the Willamette River, is the capital of Oregon. The city is nicknamed “Cherry City” and was the first city in the state to be recognized as “Tree City USA.” Cherry trees line the city streets and the front of the capitol building. On a clear day, the Cascade Mountains, including Mt. Mount Hood, Mount Jefferson, and even Mount St. Helens are visible from Salem. While you’re here, check out various events put on by the Willamette Valley Road Runners, such as the Bush Park Cross Country Series.
