about



I Heart Pacific Northwest is designed and written by Lisa Holmes, a graphic designer living in Portland, Oregon. When I’m not designing websites or print materials at my company, Yulan Studio, I like to spend time hiking and exploring the surrounding areas.

This site is a chronological history of every hike I’ve done since moving to Oregon from the Midwest in 2007.

Crescent Beach

Crescent Beach is one of the most photographed beaches in Oregon. Located at Ecola State Park, the beach is accessible via a 1-1/4 mile hike through coastal forest.
