When we left the campground Monday afternoon, Dave wanted to drive over to check out Fort Rock State Park. We had driven near it a few weeks ago when we took the back roads on our way home from Palm Springs.
We weren't sure how much further east it was out of La Pine but we do now. If we had known it was 36 miles to get there we probably wouldn't have gone, but it was a nice afternoon and we can now check this off our list of things to see in Central Oregon.
If you'd like to know more about Fort Rock or how it was formed, here's a link to a great informative site. http://hubpages.com/hub/Exploring-Fort-Rock--Oregon---An-Amazing-Geologic-Formation-With-Historical-Wonderment
