A Central Oregon Excursion

August is turning out to be a month of travel! First was the Oregon Coast Bike Tour. Now it’s time for a trip to Central Oregon.

Today Emee, her kids, and myself will be driving out to Cove Palisades State Park to spend three nights in a cabin. The cabin is on Lake Billy Chinook, an impoundment of the Deschutes River just downstream of where the Crooked River meets it. Instead of the lush landscapes of Western Oregon, I’ll be looking at the more arid and rocky high desert of sagebrush and juniper. It’ll be quite the change!

I don’t know what we’ll be doing exactly besides hanging out by a lake. I hope that we can take a jaunt to nearby Smith Rock (pictured above, from a 2016 trip) and maybe Bend, as Bend is always fun. In any case I doubt that I’ll be posting anything about the trip here until a few weeks from now. Stay tuned to either my Instagram or flickr for possible timely updates.
