From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Western Oregon is a geographical term that is generally taken to apply to the portion of the state of Oregon that is west of the Cascade Range. The term is applied somewhat loosely however, and is sometimes taken to exclude the southwestern areas of the state, which are often referred to as "Southern Oregon". In that case, "Western Oregon" means only the counties west of the Cascades and north of and including Lane County.

Unlike the climate of Eastern Oregon, which is dry and continental, the climate of Western Oregon is generally a moderate rain forest climate.
