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.

Neahkahnie Mountain

The views from Neahkahnie Mountain (1,680 ft.) are some of the best in the north Oregon coast. Jutting up directly next to the ocean and Highway 101, Neahhaknie Mountain is part of Oswald West State Park, located north of Manzanita, Oregon and Nehalem Bay.
