Central Oregon is full of beautiful sites to see & places to explore. Here's a list of just a handful of things to see:
:: Smith Rock State Park ::
Located in the high desert of Oregon is Smith Rock. Hiking, biking & rock climbing are popular in this area.
:: Richardson Rock Ranch ::
For rock hounds, Richardson Rock Ranch is a neat place to visit. You can search for your own thunder egg and/or check out their rock shop.
:: Ogden Wayside ::
If you are headed for adventure at Smith Rock a quick stop at the Peter Skene Ogden State Scenic Viewpoint is a must. The views of the Crooked River Canyon are gorgeous.
:: Operation Santa Claus Reindeer Ranch ::
Not far outside Redmond is a reindeer ranch. Santa isn't there, but he does use these reindeer at Christmas time. It's another place for a quick stop, as there aren't any tours or picnic areas.
:: Sisters ::
A great little western town to visit is Sisters, Oregon. I have no idea why the only photo I could find of us in Sisters is of me in the "Sisters Jail," but that's the way it goes. It really is a cute town with fun places to shop & good places to eat.
:: Animals to See ::
:: Areas to Explore ::
:: Driving Around ::
:: Prineville Reservoir ::
Located outside the small town of Prineville is Prineville Reservoir. We have enjoyed boating & camping here.
:: Lake Billy Chinook ::
Outside of Madras is Lake Billy Chinook, another great camping destination.
