We end up sleeping in a heavy snow pack outside of Hoodoo in the cascade Range. Dogs nice and toasty.
First stop, Smith Rock.
We reach the Painted hills just in time for sun down. We talk to a gentleman photographing the hills and he tells us this is the most snow he’s ever seen on them.
After some searching on the map we find clear ground along the John Day river. The drive there is along some dirt paths and deep snow. This gives me the ability to practice with my night time photography.
Bright and early we’re up. We have some hot springs to hit on the way home.
