Central Oregon is Beautiful

Year round sunshine makes for year round fun! Summer temperatures average in the low 90’s and winter will have it’s snow storms but will open up to sunshine while it’s 40 degrees. This give plenty of opportunities for fall walks along the river as the leaves change, hiking Smith Rock year round, mountain biking every evening in the summer. Central Oregon also has some of the most clear nights for stargazing!
