Oh Oregon! Smith Rock State Park

Smith Rock State Park is an amazing volcanic rock formation rising above the high desert plateau in central Oregon.  In addition to its gorgeous scenery and abundant hiking trails, it is also considered one of the best rock climbing destinations in the western United States.

We arrived in mid-morning and were able to hike a couple of miles before it got too hot.  As usual, I was constantly lagging behind my family, sister and brother-in-law, stopping to take photos.  So many amazing photo opportunities!
