The last 3 days we took a trip to the Oregon Outback Scenic Byway. I saw new places and enjoyed the drive. We went east from La Pine to Silver Lake, and traveled many roads not usually driven, gravel, and wintertime impassable. We saw the Sand Dunes, Lost Forest, Crack in the Ground, Green Mtn Lookout, several lava beds and stopped in Fort Rock, Oregon to see the museum of old ranch buildings, a church and a school. These structures have been moved to a single site and are being restored. When the work is completed, it will be a great living history museum. They have a festival there later in August....it will be HOT...but fun to visit.
