RV Travels: Weekly Wanderings #23 – Central Oregon, Redmond

Our wanderings have slowed down a bit. The pace in central Oregon calls for that. We spent our five days in Dayville visiting the Painted Hills and taking leisurely drives through some of the back roads.

It rained off and on, conducive for resting, which we did a lot of. I started and finished a book and began another, worked on blog posts for Portugal and generally took it easy.

On Monday we headed deeper into Oregon to Redmond, about 20-30 minutes from Bend. Our RV spot is under a beautiful tree and we've enjoyed morning coffee and dinners outside.

Still little to no cell service, or maybe it's just there are no AT&T towers. And little to no wifi.

We've been exploring the local sites: Smith Rock State Park, waterfalls and rivers. We went to Bend to do some shopping. In general, we've had easy days.

Today was the first day I could put on a regular show without screaming in pain, it was more like a whimper, but I got it on!

Next Monday we're moving to the other side of Bend to Crescent (about 30 minutes) and we'll be visiting Crater Lake, a place I've wanted to visit for a while now.

That will be our last week in central Oregon before moving to the coast for five+ weeks. Those will be long days with sunrise, sunset and star shooting, but hey we're by the sea!

I'll also be checking out seafood and a few other food purveyors, back in the land of foodies!

KOA, Redmond/Culver Oregon.

Well, that was my week, how about yours?

  1. It looks really pretty there. I have not been to Oregon but would love to some day. Thanks for sharing.

      @Kathleen, it is such a diverse state. Eastern and Central have drier environments ranging from desert to volcanic lava, plus its own forests. Then there are the beautiful forests and don’t get me started on the coast – rugged and unspoiled.

      1. That is the best kind of place to live. Wisconsin is kind of like that, no desert or volcanic. We are bordered by two of the Great Lakes and where I am here in northern Wisconsin, lots of forest and lakes. A perfect tourism place to live.
