About the Author
DOUGLAS LORAIN'S family moved to Oregon when he was six years old, and he's lived there ever since. Now a tax accountant living in Portland, he's explored every nook, cranny, and corner of his home state over the last few decades. All told he's logged over 16,000 hiking miles in Oregon. In an average year, he spends 150 to 200 days on the trail and hikes between 1500 and 2000 miles, most of it in Oregon. In 1988 he wrote his first book, Backpacking Oregon for Wilderness Press. It was followed by Backpacking Washington, Afoot & Afield -- Portland/Vancouver, and Backpacking Idaho. His photographs have been featured in scenic photography books such as Discovering Oregon and Volcano--Mount St. Helens, as well as numerous scenic calendars for Oregon, Washington, Montana, Nevada, Wyoming, and Idaho; they have also been published in magazines such as Oregon Outside.

What I like about this publication is that the maps are in full color along with elevation skematics. Help us find "Devil's Rest" in the Columbia River Gorge when there was no posted sign, simply by the description of the hike and what to look for. We ran into a guy who had been hiking in cirlce for two hours trying to find it!
One downside is that the book is heavy. What we did was make a color copy of the specific hike description. In that way, we could fold it, put it in our pocket, write on it, etc. . . . .
I left my first copy in Oregon with a hiking buddy and ordered another one on Amazon to replace it for myself when I returned home to Okalhoma so I can plan my next Oregon hiking vacation!!!!
