Points of Interest....

Memorial Day weekend.... the weather was so nice we couldn’t resist getting out and riding somewhere. Meredith and I usually stay around home and avoid the crowded roads and tourist attractions....







But, on this day we decided to venture out and explore the Newberry National Volcanic Monument area.... take in the sights and have lunch somewhere.







We were able to ride the motorcycle to the top of Lava Butte and hike around a short loop on the crater’s edge… with wonderful views of the lava flow and surrounding area









We brought our riding friend “Mr. Bill” along





An active fire lookout at the top



We decided to ride over to Paulina Lake and East Lake which is at the southern end of Newberry Nat’l Volcanic Monument, and stop at the Paulina Lodge for lunch









As it turned out, no crowds to speak of and the traffic was light…. Just a great Spring day!

I grew up in Oregon (Sweet Home) and definately want to expore some of the places my parents took me to as a kid but since I'm in Washington, all starting points for an Oregon ride are 3 - 4 hours away. I did get in a good one last summer though. Thanks for the refresher.

2012 DL1000 Red/Black Just getting started.

I complimented your photography back in '08 at that rally in Flag, and you just keep getting better!

Ken,
Have you been to SE Crooked River hwy (27) by the Prineville Res Dam? From the dam north to Prineville, it's one long continuous park along the Crooked River. 15 minutes from Bend and a great place to find a picnic table and enjoy your packed lunch.
