Prineville to Cold Springs Campground (west of Sisters), Oregon. (46 mi.) Mile 4080
A peak at what's ahead
Another good ride today with all the right stuff: sunshine, ice cream, and a view of the volcanic peaks of the Cascade Range getting closer and closer. Tomorrow we cross this range at McKenzie Pass and drop down the Pacific side.
Back on June 15 we shared camp space at Cave-
The Three Sisters, volcanic peaks in the Cascade Range.
The top of volcanic 10,495 ft. Mt. Jefferson rises above central Oregon's landscape.
Sisters is a touristy town crowded with gift shops and galleries. We had plenty of time to explore Sisters, eat a good meal, pick up some groceries, and hit the road for the peace and quiet of this Forest Service campground.
