I'm starting to think Washingtonians are posting all these Oregon pics in an effort to deflect the migration ;)

level 2

So us Oregonians need to post beautiful pictures of California so they'll all go back home and stop jacking our rent up?

level 3

Not just the rent. I live in Portland and a house in my neighborhood sold last year for nearly $500,000 to a family from Cali. The people who sold it had only lived in it for 2 years and they purchased it for $180,000.

level 4

500k is incredibly cheap compared to bay area home prices

Everything is cheap compared to bay area. Meanwhile my dad has a 4 bedroom in Florida that he bought for 53k 2 years ago.

I know, but it is highly highly unusual for my neighborhood. My neighbors are mailmen, elementary school teachers, receptionists, paramedics, non-profit workers, etc. Solidly middle-class. None of us could afford our own homes if we had to buy them now, whereas just 3 years ago we could have afforded them.

level 5

And that’s what they all say. Meanwhile those of us who’ve lived there are unable to afford to do so anymore. My best friend is currently employed and living in a van after 25 years of living in Portland simply because she was priced out of the city. It’s fucked.

level 6

> My best friend is currently employed and living in a van after 25 years of living in Portland simply because she was priced out of the city.

We're dealing with the same thing here in California. My friend's rent went up $800 in 4 years. How is anyone supposed to keep up with that? My best friend works in the weed industry, which is huge here, and she's about to lose her apartment and become homeless because she can't afford the rent anywhere else. 4 of her coworkers are living in their cars. Don't blame Californians, we're just trying to find somewhere we want to live that we can afford to. Blame rich people and landlords.

level 7

Maybe a tad simplistic but do you think she and her friends could rent a big place together? Or is that still unaffordable? Note, am Australian so I know about ridiculously high cost of living.

level 8

She's looking into doing that, yeah. The hard part is finding a place that's the right balance of enough space for the people that are going to rent, but also affordable enough for each individual person, and then also dealing with the competition of other people trying to rent. And I think some of her friends are trying to leave the area. I wish she could just come live with me, but I live too far away from her work, which is a really fantastic opportunity for her right now. Once she gets some solid experience there we're all probably gonna try and find a new area to live, but it's hard to find an area that has the things we want/need where we also won't be hated because of where we're from. I'm trying to keep my eyes out for any of my friends in that part of the bay right now that may be looking for roomies. Thanks for suggesting a possible solution, I appreciate you trying to help :)

Hi, sorry to hear that your best friend is in trouble. Just wanted to add that the same phenomena is happening in all the major cities in Europe. Along with the slow economic growth, many middle class families are unable to face rising prices of life in general along with the pricy accomodation in urban centres (Paris, London; Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia, Rome, Geneva, Berlin, Helsinki and the list goes on...) so they are forced in most cases to sell their (loved) apartments or flats in urban centres to go live like 30-50 km from the city in the they work in if they are still employed because unemployment is rising here too. It is real sad

Good luck to your friend, hope she finds some accomodation soon...

Best regards

Nik

Exactly. We're all dealing with the same problem: being pushed out of our home areas due to increased housing/rent prices. We should be together in solidarity of our problem, we're all West Coasters and are fairly similar. I hope Oregon and Washington realize this so we can be united together against our common enemy.

What's funny too is that people bitch about Californians moving to their state, but we have taken in tons of people from other states over the last couple decades. We deal with insanely high rents also, yet people bitch at us?! Like come talk to me about high rents after living in the Bay for a year. People don't leave this state because they want to, we are forced to. This is my home too and where I have lived forever, so don't complain about it happening to other states if you guys keep sending people our way as well.

level 6

There is a reason why Oregonians resent Californian immigrants, dude. It isn't just an internet meme or some kind of baseless xenophobia, it goes back over decades of watching Californians move here and trash everything they touch, and it's most keenly felt in little coastal towns.

I'm not saying you're like that - fine, cool, be proud of where you're from. Just recognize that we are too, and your origins come with some unpleasant history, so you're going to run into that if you advertise it. It's kinda like having a Trump sticker on your car and living in Eugene, or a Hillary one & living in Lakeview.

level 7

California is a huge state with a huge population. Yes there are a lot of assholes, there are assholes everywhere. I've lived in another state, it had the same proportion of assholes as everywhere else. But since we have a large population it seems like most Californians are assholes. Self righteous assholes are always going to make the most noise and gain attention. Regular people are going to pass through unnoticed. Californians get mad about our flavor of douches too, just like every state gets mad about their flavor of douches.

When I lived in Montana I had to deal with some horrible people there who really ruined a lot of shit for me. But I do not hate the whole state of people, there are some great people there too. There are shitty people everywhere and I'm not going to be rude and spew hate about a whole state full of people. Things are more complex than that, and I think it's kinda fucked up to have the mentality of "Well, some douchebags came through here from your state, so I'm going to hate all of you and treat all of you shitty for it!!!" We have tourists come here from other states and do fucked up shit and trash places too, I'm not going to make generalizations of all the people that live where they're from because of it.

I would love if Californians would move to the dying East coast mill towns and 'trash' them by pouring a large influx of cash and new businesses into them. I saw those 'little coastal towns' of Oregon in the 80s, they were sad little dives with one industry, either timber or fishing, and when that industry died so did the town, except for native retirees. I recognize those towns as similar to the Rust Belt towns I live in/pass through now.

If Californians as a whole are trashing everything they touch then why does everyone say it's our fault for rising hosing costs? Wouldn't that have the opposite effect? Maybe it's not JUST Californians. I just don't get the mindset. California is a melting pot and it is wholly embraced (except maybe by the Trump sticker folks). There are just as many people coming here from other states, so why we get singled out (and also lumped together like we all are in on some huge conspiracy) is beyond me. It seriously feels like a form a prejudice being that Oregonians are judging me based off where I came from. I don't care whether there is a reason or not. It's not right to judge another person that way. I have this same view regarding immigrants to U.S. from other countries. Don't judge them all based on the actions of a few, and especially not based on stereotypes.

The douchebaggery has not helped me much by way of coping with the ensuing depression from losing dad. Even though my husband is here, we feel so alone and exiled here by the locals. I wish I had a better experience with the people here. Thank you for the positivity, it has been hard to come by for me recently.

I'm sorry to hear about your loss, i cant imagine how tough that must be.

This might be some obvious shit that you've already thought of but, are there any hobbies or things you like that you could explore the community more? like when i was younger i skateboarded and i'd always find a home at a skatepark/shop and now i teach and practice a lot of yoga and always find a welcoming community (even if that means checking out different studios until i find the right one...). I have moved a lot and sometimes places seem isolating or crappy because of my lack of effort, like im SURE there are some people in portland that arent the worst, you may just have to find them! how about a co-ed soccer league or something corny but fun like bowling? i know the bumble app matches friends too, that could be handy, maybe find some other transplants and you guys can all hang out and talk shit about portland together :)

remember, this too shall pass.

And just to reiterate, I do not advertise where I'm from. But I still get to stand there in silence when Oregon born co-workers start talking shit about Californians when they don't know where im.from. So, it's not like I'm inviting the discord, it's just there in my face.

level 8

I was born in California, but my family moved to Oregon when I was about 6 months old, so I grew up here and have always felt like an Oregonian more than a Californian. I love California/Californians (mom grew up there and my oma lived there for like 30 years), and it's always fun to talk about where I was born or how they like Oregon. Sorry you get some entitled Oregonians out there.

Edit: Also after reading a few more comments, it sounds like Portland is really the main place for all the douche bags acting like this. It happens throughout Oregon as kind of a joke, but I honestly think a lot of locals in my town don't really care.

I've officially "met" more Oregonians from just this post that don't harbor negative feelings for out-of-staters than I have in real life. Makes me feel more hopeful actually that if I keep putting myself out there socially I might find some nice folks eventually. Maybe I didn't anticipate the culture shock of being here versus CA bay area? I dunno, I just had high hopes for a future here and keep feeling like Oregonians I have come across so far in real life are more apt to kick me while I'm down. I realize I probably sound like a whiney bitch, and that's not my intent. So I apologize if I sound that way.

level 10

Oh geez dude, you're fine. You're not a whiney bitch, but thanks for the apology. It honestly makes me so sad that you have been experiencing people like that here. There are always going to be assholes out there, so it just sucks that you've come across a lot of the assholes in Oregon. There are soooooooo many "Oregonians" who aren't really originally from Oregon, so I don't think it will be like this forever for you. Living in a new place is hard in general, so I can imagine it gets old when the locals are constantly giving you shit for being from Cali.

level 10

Check it, if you're a douche hole Californian that comes to Oregon to buy up property and sit on it with no developmental ideation, or come to "get away from the mexicans" , or you come and fuck up our trails and beaches then duck right off. If you're a cool person that wants to come experience Oregon and its beauty then welcome glad to have you. Just be respectful because we respect our home.

As an Oregonian, I don’t hate that people come to visit, in fact tourism is most of the Pacific Northwest’s source of income. However, almost all tourists come and don’t respect what we have here. They think it’s like wherever they came from where they can just fuck around and litter everywhere they go, on top of that lots of tourists die here because they’ve never been exposed to nature before and are used to the safety of cities. It’s just a big mess, I kind of wish there were just tourist days rather than a steady stream of them everyday, so we have time to recover our little communities between their vast littering expeditions. Our beaches are filthy now, and it sucks because the animals are the ones who are really suffering.

level 2

I totally feel your pain, I think everywhere that experiences tourism deals with this. I lived in Montana close to Yellowstone for 8 years, and am currently in California. Tourists that visited both areas were disrespectful and trashed the place. Not all, there were some really awesome tourists too. Sadly there are people everywhere that ruin shit for the rest of us.

Goonies the combination of California-bashing and Goonies-loving is funny, because the Goonies was shot in Sonoma County, CA at Goat Rock Beach:

I moved to California from the East Coast 12 years ago.

Not once I have I heard anyone here in the Bay Area bitch about people moving to California. I hear every single day people bitching about migrants going to Oregon and Washington. Welcome to having some place nice people enjoy. Try being Detroit for a day. See how much happier you are with that.

level 2

Bay Area resident here. Every time I travel to other states, people like to tell me about how their specific town is the one town where all the people from Silicon Valley are moving, and how it's driving up the rent, and how people from California are rude.

level 3

Pretty much the same. I live in San Jose and travel. I wasn't even born in raised but you'd think I just flew in and took a shit on their town monument with the downright hostility I have been shown.

I mean, in fairness, when I lived in Charlotte, NC between 2000-2005 the southern part of the city is where all of the transplants from California moved, and they did tend to be insufferable dickheads. I just figured California packed up their shittiest people and had them leave. It wasn't so bad though that I decided not to move out here.

I’ll never forget how beautiful the Oregon coast is, I stayed in Gold Beach for 2 weeks a couple summers ago and it was the most beautiful and greenest place I’ve been! I’m an AZ native so it was definitely a sight to see!

I miss Oregon. My ashes will be spread in the Columbia River.

NJ ain't as bad as you think but it's no Oregon.

As a Washington native, it's the prettiest state in the country imo.

Is this Iowa?

This seems like one of those stretches of water that is really tempting to jump in but actually leads to almost instant death

level 2

Can confirm as a native Oregonian, that part of the Pacific is not for swimming, wading or any other activity for those without a death wish.

level 3

Cold as fuck, serious undertow, and sharks everywhere.

Doesn't stop the surfers, but they're also crazy.

Wait long enough and you will see Kratos and Atreus pass by on a boat.

When is the best time to visit the Oregon coast? My family and I are considering going for a vacation

level 2

Off season, unless you enjoy lots of people. I'd say February or March. Bring fleece, rain gear, boots, waterproof gloves, etc. In March the whales are migrating. Oh, and seriously, don't turn your back on the ocean when you're on a beach. Pay attention.

Damn there’s a thread here on how people from California get shit from people in Oregon and WA when they migrate there. To think that I wanted to move to WA within the next 3 years or so, I’m fucked

Info and Rules

Welcome to /r/EarthPorn, reddit's premiere landscape photography subreddit

Please post your own images here, but before you do, kindly read and adhere to the following rules:

Submissions must be:

A photograph

No Paintings, illustrations, gifs, videos, or interactive images.

A photograph you took (OC)

or one which you can provide the original source. Failure to provide the photographers name or the original source of the image can result in a ban.

A single image

Albums may be posted in the comments. Panoramas, Image Stacks, Composites, and images edited via Photoshop or similar software are allowed.

An image featuring a natural landscape

Images with humans, machines, boats, roads, airplanes, farms, animals, buildings, or other man made objects in them will be removed.

An unsilhouetted image

Images where details in the landscape are not visible due to silhouetting will be removed.

Title Requirements:

You submission title must contain the following:

The location of the area in the photo

When it comes to location, the more specific the better. If you wish to not disclose the location you should at the very least name the state/country. Rule of thumb for naming only the location (e.g. a lake, mountain): if one can find the place immediately by searching it in google it's fine. For possibly ambiguous locations add state/country for safety.

The resolution of the image in pixel format

For example, an image taken on an iPhone 6 would have a resolution of [3264x2448]

The photographers name

If you took the photo use [OC]. OC submitters will be reward with different camera flairs based on number of OC submissions.

Do not include your device name in the title.

Feel free to add photography details such as camera, lens, and settings, as a comment.

Do not ask for upvotes in your title
