Observations from an Oregon webfoot visiting the "Valley of the Sun"
You know you are not in Oregon when...
It's 60 degrees in January - and people are bundled in jackets, complaining about the cold.
You see more cactus than trees.
All the "shrubbery" have sharp points.
The mountains are red and brown, not green and white.
The tourism bureau says the number one local attraction is "shopping."
You see more people smoking outside than bicycling outside.
All the "shrubs" have sharp points, and none need water.
You use the rental car's heater and air conditioning in the same day.
No one is wearing any Gore-Tex!
