Day Trip Inland East to Sisters Oregon
Via McKenzie Pass and Oregon Volcano
area with black Volcanic Rock
- Pictures and Tips
Day trip over to town of Sisters east of Eugene, Oregon. Saw many
elk along road near Eugene. Was a little foggy in early AM.
Went to Sisters from Eugene, OR on scenic route by way of
Hwy 242 - McKenzie Pass (Elev 5,324)
-- Former site of Oregon Volcano eruption. They closed the pass for winter because of snow the day after we were there.
Tip - It is important to check if the Scenic McKenzie Pass road is open before you start out on this Day Trip to Sisters so you won't make 2/3 of your drive and then find out the McKenzie Pass is closed for snow!

For my Wife, the REAL reason for going to town of Sisters, Oregon
- 3 1/2 hours drive each way from Florence
-- a Sisters Quilt Shop my Wife had read about!
Fun place where we had lunch in Sisters, OR - the Depot Deli.
They had a working model train that ran around track near the ceiling
- also had great soup and sandwiches!
Lot of rain and foggy weather there - result is a lot of moss growing on trees in higher elevations
Oregon Autumn fog on mountains across river - taken from McKenzie Hwy
Are many Covered Bridges in Oregon - Much "Newer" and more standardized than older
Covered bridges in Eastern US and in Iowa that are more "Unique"
and we thought have more Character.
-- On Return trip via Hwy 20 & 228 to check out two Oregon Covered Bridges
