Metolius Oregon 2009

I had heard of the Metolius river for a while, had ridden past the sign on US 20 a few times.  It is time to take a look at it. Let’s try the WR250R on a real adventure.

I met with friends and we camped by the Metolius River.  I took the WR250R with me.

Besides riding in the area around the Metolius, I also wanted to check out the Pine Mountain Observatory as a possible area for a group ride with a night at the observatory as an added bonus.

On top of Pine Mountain

One of the three domes of the observatory.  Volunteers from the University of Oregon and amateur astronomers offer a night view of the sky, with explanations, during summer weekend nights.

A few curiosities along the way. Dry days…

Local entertainment options.

Beer ready!

And with a view.

Can’t blame him (her) for lack of creativity.
