Photos of the Day: A Walk Around the State Capitol in Salem, Oregon

A visit to your State Capitol is a great way to spend an afternoon. In Salem Oregon, tours are available Monday through Friday, 9 am to 4 pm, and begin at the top of the hour. The tour guides are typically the kindest retirees with an interest in history and desire to spread their knowledge. It’s also a wonderful thing for kids to experience. Also, it’s my favorite price — free! This is a quick trip through the building in Salem.
