This trip heads to the high-desert  to explore a landscape that most people don’t associate with Oregon. The mossy forests on the west side give way to small juniper trees, Ponderosa pines, and sunshine. We’ll Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) sections of the Deschutes River fed by crystal clear springs, and stay in an awesome cabin near the river. Plan to hike the world famous Smith Rock State Park, location of some amazing rock formations. Weather permitting, we will also hike at Crater Lake National Park for a day.
