This High Lava Plains gallery is also
called the Oregon High Desert. For those who love
wide open spaces, interesting geologic formations, mountain peaks and
over 300 days of sunshine, this is the place for you!
Whether "Ranching Beneath Broken Top and the Three Sisters" or "Winding to South Sister" ... bird watching at "Malheur National Wildlife Reserve" or viewing "Paulina Lake and East Lake", it's ALL scenic.
The "Smith Rock Valley" at Smith Rock State Park near Terrebonne is a rock climber's paradise. For a bit of geology, go to "Fort Rock" , south east of La Pine, or Newberry National Volcanic Monument (54,000 acres). You'll see "Obsidian Flow" and other volcanic features with "Scarlet Paintbrush" dappling the way. The "Lava Cast Forest", "Crack in the Ground"and "Mt Bachelor and the Three Sisters" will round out your heady trip.
"Black Butte in the Fog - Ochoco National Forest” signals how remote the area is;
but a drive up Pilot Butte to view the "City of Bend" or a trek to "Lake Billy Chinook" will dash that remote feeling.
What a great day of exploration.
