The Oregon Trail and First Settlers
The Oregon Trail was a big deal for Oregon when America was first being developed, before America was America it was ruled by England that is until we won the war then Oregon was gave up from England to the United States of America and there was a lot of Beavers witch they could trade Beaver skin and Beaver skin was valuable so a lot of people wanted to come to Oregon witch created the Oregon Trail. The first out of all the first were Indians (Native Americans) and the main group was Chihook. The first people there besides Indians there were European explorers.
The land in Oregon is really beautiful it has anything from flat platues to sandy beaches and everything in between. Oregon has many diffrant things to see one of the most intesting things is the Great Basin ,the Great Basin is surrounded by many mountains and has no outlet to sea or a river so if it rains there it will ether soaks into the ground or make a short living lake witch evaporates in a very short time. the last few things about Oregon's land is the volcanoes (extinct), big lakes (Crater lake, deepest lake in the U.S.A),forests cover 40% of state, and many more things.

Details About Oregon's Flag
Oregon's Flag is very uiniqe because it is the only state flag in the United States of America with an imprint on both sides, one side has a Beaver on it and on the other side is the real stuff, it has a heart shape with an eagle inside and 33 stars surrounding it and the last finishing touches the sun setting over the Pacific ocean, mountains, forests and a covered wagon with wheat, a plow, and a pickax for farming and mining.
