Laura O. Foster

Author of Pacific Northwest guidebooks. I've also written a ton about local natural areas for Portland Parks and Metro (Portland's regional government). I'm currently working on a revised edition of The Portland Stairs Book. Most recent book, Columbia Gorge Getaways, describes 12 48-hour adventures in the Columbia Gorge National Scenic Area--in both urban and wilderness locales.
