Prineville Reservoir is located in the high desert hills of central Oregon.
It's about 16 miles from the town center to the boat dock at the state park.
Apparently my husband and his friends used to ride their bikes out here when they were in middle school - a tale I'd never heard before...which is rare when you've been married thirty years and heard most childhood tales many times over! Especially the ones about cliff diving - he loves telling those!
Those summer days...
those hot days in the summer time...
you grab a friend with a boat
and head to the reservoir!
You claim a beach and set up camp.
If you're grandpa, you find a shady spot under a juniper tree and bring a book.
There's sun bathing.
And more book reading.
And plenty of fun on the water!
Even when the days are a bit hazy because of the smokey skies,
the scenery never fails to amaze me!
