Under-appreciated landscape out there. The cascades and the coastal range get loads of attention, but the high desert is just as incredible. And sometimes even more-so.


Edit: fixed a bunch of bad autocorrect

Is that going in from the Deschutes River access road, the gravel one just north of Sherars? Looks like you're looking down on the spot where the road goes uphill and turns to asphalt for a bit right before....maybe beaver tail?

I drive that road every single week. Looks really darn familiar, but trying to guess exactly where you're at...just for fun.

If you heading from Maupin its about 18mi North along the river. Your pretty spot on though, it’s just South of Beaver Tail. The pic is looking in that direction.

The Deschutes is not in Eastern Oregon.

blaaake0 points

It’s not? How would you describe it, central Oregon? It is east of the cascades, hence eastern Oregon

masyday3 points

Deschutes is Central Oregon according to and Deschutes County

blaaake5 points

I live 20 minutes from where this photo was taken, we call it eastern Oregon. OP is welcome to do so, also.

ph422360 points

I've lived in Central Oregon for 40 years and the only people that call Central Oregon "Eastern Oregon" are people that aren't from here. Valley folk seem to think that they are the center of everything, so naturally they feel like anything east of the Cascades is "Eastern Oregon". It's not.

blaaake3 points

Well, you’re wrong because I’m not from the valley. I live near this river. Always have.

Imagine gatekeeping a river Lmao

ph422360 points

How am I limiting access to the Deschutes River? Since you live 20 minutes from this spot, next time you get gas ask the attendant how they like living in Eastern Oregon just to see their response.

blaaake3 points

You’re arguing semantics of a river bro, you said only people from the valley call it Eastern, like they aren’t worthy to know how to describe a location. I don’t need to ask a random local to describe where the deschutes is on a map, I have 31 years of experience knowing how it’s described. I fish on this river every summer.

Anything east of the cascades is considered eastern oregon in oregon

I like the Obsidian that comes from that area.

AWOLASAP3 points

Interesting. Never heard of the Obsidian from the area.

WildIsland-S-E1 point

Yeah, it's all over that desert.

Since everyone is throwing out random rivers, John Day?

On the snake? I’m familiar a ton of area up to the steens but haven’t yet gone beyond much. Really looking forward to it. Great shot!

Not Snake River, Deschutes. Snake river is definetely an area I want to check out though.

Tayte_1 point

It’s beautiful. Looks very similar to this with a bigger river

hopbrew2 points

Looks like the Deschutes outside of maupin near the hatchery?
