Congratulations and well done to Jada Jones for her winning essay for the 2017 Oregon Blue Book. Her classmate Mizuki Maddock also contributed a wonderful drawing to help illustrate Jada's Oregon story. Enjoy her essay below and read more here: http://bluebook.state.or.us/facts/scenic/essays2017/essay01.htm


My most memorable Oregon experience was camping along the Crooked River with family. We fly fished for trout and watched birds hunt in the canyon. This whole area is beautiful.


On the first day of our trip I saw a Monarch butterfly. I got close and noticed a large tear in it’s wing. I asked my parents how we could help. They couldn’t fix the wing, but said I could find it nectar.


For the next few days I cared for Lila. She held on to me wherever I went. On the fourth day we needed to head back home and I couldn’t take her with us. I wished she could fly again and continue her journey. At that moment, Lila said good bye and flew away.


I will always remember this experience. I hope you are able to have an experience in Oregon you will never forget.
