We got stopped for road construction along the way, so I stuck my camera out the window and took a picture of this. I have no idea what it is.

Our next stop was at Crane Prairie Reservoir. What a serene place. Not many people are out camping and boating in September, but it's the perfect time to explore these mountain lakes.

I read that there's a 10 mph speed limit everywhere on the reservoir, so I imagine it's not too loud during the busier season.
The Deschutes River originates from a few different feeds farther up in the mountains and flows all the way out to the Columbia River. It's one of the most beautiful rivers I've seen.
