Have you spent any time east of Bend or in the Oregon Outback area? These are some of my favorite places in the state. The China Hat/Four Corners area south and east of Bend is terrific for dirt bike riding, etc. Some amazing views out there of the high desert and the Cascade Range. Bend has all of the food and whiskey you’ll need, including many, many breweries and pubs. Tons of lodging choices too. For hot springs, head south to Silver Lake and Paisley area. Summer Lake Hot Springs is right in the middle. There is camping or cabins there. Hike on Winter Rim. Fish the Chewaucan River. Drive east to Hart Mountain and see the pronghorn. If you haven’t spent any time down that way, it’ll change your life.
