The Central Oregon Way

Oregon Thanksgiving 2014 008Over Thanksgiving I went on a trip to chilly and damp central Oregon to visit my father. According to stories told in the car I had been there before. (Back when I was a skiing fool!) While I remember being a skiing fool, I don’t remember central Oregon.

There were a few things I learned during my short trip.

  • If you are looking for a conversation and simple chats head over to central Oregon. I was not aware such Oregon Thanksgiving 2014 029random conversations with smiling faces could exist.
  • If you are in the mood to be cold and surrounded by trees in the winter, but don’t want to drive all the way to Washington stop at central Oregon.
  • If you want to see deer that don’t care you are sharing their land, go to central Oregon. But watch where you step.
  • If you follow rodeos apparently central Oregon is the place to be.
  • If you don’t own a 1) truck 2) tractor 3) or are selling a tractor, then you are out-of-place.
  • If you are into travel brochures and flyers galore central Oregon has many road-side information booths not under any supervision.

  1. Central Oregon sounds both rugged and lovely. A place where people are earthy and hearty. Hope to get a chance to visit someday…probably in the summer…not up for the cold!

    1. It is much like Flagstaff, high desert. Summer would be beautiful, apparently they have snow on the mountains all year, making for nice views.
