Winter Is The Best Time To Explore Oregon’s Badlands

The Oregon Badlands Wilderness encompasses 29,180 acres just east of Bend, and it’s a vast area that’s full of volcanic rock formations and juniper trees. The Badlands can get pretty hot during the summer months, but in the winter, it’s a vast wonderland, and accessible for those who wish to hike, photograph the landscape, or just bask in the beauty of this rugged place.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:
