Painted Hills ride with Rattlehead...

The two of us did a nice ride to an area of Oregon I hadn't been to before.

We went down 197 to Shears Bridge...



We went over to Shaniko and stopped at the ice cream shop, and looked at some of the antique vehicles there.

From Shaniko is one of my favorite roads. Rattlehead enjoying it...

Another nice highway shot...



Nice country out there.



We hit some gravel roads that Rattlehead heard about, down to painted hills.

We hit another gravel road that wasn't on my GPS, and hit 19 over to Spray, where I've found there is very good food at the bar and grille there.

Special was open faced prime rib sandwich and mashed taters smothered in gravy.

Mandatory cuisine shot.

So, we went up 207 to the Morrow County ATV park. It was getting late, and Rattlehead doesn't have any tip over protection on the Strom yet, so we didn't hit the ATV and single track trails. They do serve a mean green apple smoothie there.

If you guys haven't been, the Morrow County ATV park is excellent. Here's a little video tour from a previous trip.



New at the landing was this really cool wood stove made from a bucket.



Kind of goes with the rugged theme there, and the Cat tractor turned barbecue on the other end of the day use area.

On the way back we hit 206 over to Condon. Lots of wind turbines out there.



Then we went over to Wasco, up Fulton Canyon to the Dechutes river by Hwy30, then took Old Moody Road over back toward town. By then the sun was low, and it was really hard to see.

Compilation of video from the ride...



Hopefully Rattlehead can post some photos to this soon.

Cheezy little ride report, but I thought I'd put the pictures up somewhere...
