Northwest Travel & Life: Break Away to Central Oregon

12 01 2017

One of four stories I have in the latest issue of Northwest Travel & Life, this piece details the glory of winter in Central Oregon. From the article:

“Central Oregon doesn’t have to work very hard to attract visitors. The town of Bend sits snugly against the eastern side of the Cascade Range, and the area offers everything from dense forest to high desert, and a collection of ecoregions in between. What was once a logging town was transformed a while back into a base camp for outdoor enthusiasts of nearly every ilk. As the morph progressed, Bend became an artist enclave, with an exceptional food and drink scene following closely behind. The Bend-Sunriver-Mt. Bachelor area has somehow managed to hold onto much of its rugged Western character while becoming a destination for world-class hiking, paddling, and fishing, as well as cuisine. But the allure of Central Oregon goes well beyond summer.”

Picture of the Week: The Big Obsidian Flow at the Newberry National Volcanic Monument

8 10 2012

I just got back from a week of waterfall hunting in Central Oregon. While photographing waterfalls in the Newberry Volcanic Monument, I took a side trip to hike through the Big Obsidian Flow. It was amazing. Within the field of black lava glass there were a handful of intrepid trees growing through the cracks. Life, she finds a way. Click on photo for larger image.
