31 Days in Oregon: Central Oregon


• thirty-one day challenge •
{DAY 11} 
Central Oregon

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.
