Out & About in Southern Oregon

Get out and about Southern Oregon with Bonnie Glidewell. You can find her on most weekends sipping, tasting and exploring her way through the region. Bonnie enjoys meeting new people and experiencing new places.

She takes full advantage of the Southern Oregon lifestyle of river rafting, hiking, wine tasting, and attending music festivals and other community events. She wants to encourage you to get out & about and do the same.
