Hard Rock in the Desert


Spent the last 2 days in Redmond/Bend Oregon at a big RV Rally.  Very hot but we got a lot of tourist stuff done.  Spent the night in The Westward Ho Motel, probably the worse flea bag motel ever.  Oh well, whatever doesn’t kill me…  The Petersen Rock Garden outside Redmond was really weird-see above.  It’s at 7930 SW 77th St about 2 miles west of US 97 between Redmond & Bend.  We met George Calum who married the Rasmus Peterson’s granddaughter.  Rasmus is the farmer who painstakingly crafted these weird structures from local stones including jasper, petrified wood, malachite, obsidian, lava & geodes.


This is well worth seeking out… No Crowds & NO Corporate Sponsor!
