Near Terrebonne, Oregon ~ September 1, 2007
If you're so inclined, you can go onto Google Earth and look up Terrebonne. The numerous blue dots nearby are pictures of Smith Rock. There's a trail up and back (long way or short, your choice) for hikers, but this is also a place climbers come from all over the world. It seems they practice here for bigger challenges, but Smith Rock is stunning in its own right. (I take the trail - and a camera.) The surrounding farmland doesn't prepare you for this anomalous outcropping and it's perfectly scenic Crooked River setting.
