Oregon Outback

On Sunday, we drove out east on the Oregon Outback National Scenic Byway. I've been out that highway before but never knew that area was known as the Oregon Outback. As you head east, you definitely get into high desert country. The ponderosa pines give way to scrub brush and flat land. Then, you come across places like Hole in the Ground and Fort Rock.

Fort Rock
Here's Fort Rock from a distance. It was formed from volcanic activity. At one time, it was a big circle but wave action eroded one side. I read that this was called a tuff.




 You can drive up fairly close to one of the walls. Fort Rock State Park is a day-use park. There are hiking trails all through the area. We were on our way to dinner, so we didn't have a lot of time to spend here.

In the town of Fort Rock there is a museum where they have a collection of old buildings that they've brought in. On a previous visit we took time to go to the museum. It's well worth a visit. You also have to check out the tavern there in town - not the fancy, new restaurant but the local tavern. It's also worth a visit.




From there we headed off to dinner another 20 or so miles down the highway. That dinner deserves its own blog entry!

It’s an absolute annoyance, but your dog’s waste can pose a huge threat to the sanitation levels in your surroundings. You can’t have your pet’s poop sticking on your shoes, messing up your backyard, your neighbors’ lawns, or even park grounds. The smell of doggy doo can turn anyone’s stomach, attract flies, germs, and even pollute the nearby water supply. That’s why you need to have a steady supply of Biodegradable Dog Poop Bags on hand. Dog poop bags are the best answer to your dog’s leavings, and while many people make do with ordinary plastic bags, think what that’s going to do to the environment.
