Putters Travels 2007 travel blog


Seven miles of 4x4 driving to dig geoides

At the opal site

Taking a break and looking around.

Hummm, wonder if there are any treasures up there

The road back to the ranch

Lots of rugged views

Lake Billy Chinook

9 degree grade down to a narrow suspension bridge

One of two bridges we crossed

Tight fit.

This one is two lanes. Almost!!!!

Little waterfall above lake

Madras is located in central Oregon 16 miles north of Redmond. We went rock hounding at Richardson's Rock Ranch, visited the Cove Palasides State Park, Lake Billy Chinook and enjoyed a few days just lazing around in the campground.
