On a hill thick with manzanita, west of La Pine, Oregon in Deschutes National Forest.
After a day of shopping in Bend, we drove down 97 through La Pine and over to South Century Drive. Because Maggie's foot was injured, we tried to minimize the trail blazing as much as possible. Luckily, the nearby National Forest roads were easily accessible to foot traffic, so we parked the car on one of them and hiked the rest of the way.
The hashpoint itself was a bit off the road, and in a very nasty patch of manzanita. This turned out to be a doable hike for Maggie, but unfortunately this trip was impromptu so Kate was not wearing adequate leg protection and got all scratched up. We did manage to get to the hashpoint and take some pictures. Nearby Wickiup Reservoir was visible from the top of the hill, but not from the hashpoint itself.
Benture makes sure that we're headed the right way.
