As the image gracing this week's cover shows, those are just some of the reasons to love Central Oregon.

But for many people, spending a day immersed in nature offers something beyond a momentary thrill. For some, natural beauty is also a font of creativity.

As Jason Graham, who's featured in the following pages as Bend's first creative laureate put it, "spending a day on the mountain should give you lots to say!"

It's in that vein that we offer these Reasons to Love Central Oregon—namely, the many creative people living and making, right here in our neck of the woods.
