08.21.15 Peter Skene Ogden State Scenic Viewpoint – A Must See!

use sign 20Friday, August 21, 2015 – The Peter Skene Ogden State Scenic Viewpoint, in Terrebonne,Oregon is the amazing sight we zooomed by while driving down the Oregon highway! It is a state park on the Crooked River along U S Highway 97. Thank goodness there was a place to pull over just past it and a pathway to walk back and see it. After walking down the pathway to the dramatic cliff, the view from the center bridge down to the Crooked River and to the bridges and views on either side is breath taking! I said to Roy, “This is absolutely the most beautiful sight we’ve seen!”  The pictures cannot possibly capture the beauty of it all.

To see the pictures bigger double click on them to enlarge them. They will also open in a new window.  I highly recommend doing this because they pictures are amazing!
