Directions

Post by SydBarrett25 » Fri Jul 03, 2009 12:35 pm

I saw the Seattle route but any every drive from Yakima? The desired route supplied by Burningman is to go through Eugene and Salem, but what if you skip that whole detour and go through Bend and 3 sisters and meet up to the same route at Crescent Lake. Seems like it would be a lot quicker unless their are worse roads, anyway thx for the help

Or you could take 395 to Cedarville.

You got it right - head straight South through Bend and hook up with route 2 or 3 in La Pine:

I went mostly the same way when I drove down from Spokane.

My vote...if you can make a 2 day trip out of it, go thru Bend, take OR-31 to Summer Lake Hot Springs (vic Paisley, OR), soak, sleep...continue to BRC on Sunday.

12:01am Monday. Try Pyramid Lake. Get a permit, not only are you asking for trouble if you don't have one, but the money goes to the Washoe Tribe.
