It started with a sound like distant thunder, but the skies were clear. Suddenly the ground shook for miles around. A volcanic vent opened on the inside of the caldera’s rim and began sputtering lava and pumice, eventually giving way to the main lava flow.

If you like catching lots of fish and a variety of fish, then Brownlee Reservoir is the place. My wife and I joined two other couples from Prineville on September 8 and came home with plenty of fish and memories. Impounded by Brownlee Dam in 1958, this part of the Snake River system provides some great fishing. “Brownlee is probably the best fishery in the Northwest for catching a variety of warmwater species,” said Gary ...

As the strike indicator went down, the angler raised the tip of his fly rod to set the hook. It appeared, by the bend of the rod and the fight in the fish that he hooked into something pretty nice. After a minute or two, he hoisted an 18-inch whitefish from the chilly water. But getting a whitefish instead of a redband was no disappointment for Mike Lunn. As a matter of fact, this day, ...

Many players have trouble getting their weight onto their front side when chipping.  When I seem to have trouble with this, I like to imagine my right knee initiating my downswing/forward stroke in the direction of the target line.  It is important that upper and lower body work together and a good   Photo by Paul Nasri rhythm is maintained.  And in actuality, my right knee is not moving first, but the mere thought of my right ...

There can be many scary thoughts running through your head when you are faced with a bunker shot.  Rid yourself of any negative thoughts or tension and remember these three key elements the next time you find yourself in a bunker: §         Play the ball slightly forward in your stance (just inside your left heel).  This will ensure that you hit the sand first.  Open your stance, creating a steeper swing, which will encourage that ...

Although the Cascades boast more numerous and popular hiking trails, a trip to the Ochocos will often provide more solitude and some spectacular scenery. While hiking the Round Mountain Trail, I usually encounter more deer and elk tracks than those of hikers. Most of my hikes there could be summed up with the following: blue sky, birdsong and beautiful wildflowers.   Round Mountain Trail    Round Mountain offers a challenging bike ride   8.5 mile hiking trail is accessible via ...

Steins Pillar looms over the upper Mill Creek valley bottom like a protective guardian. Although there are great views of the pillar from the road, hikers can get a close up and personal experience by hiking the 1.8-mile trail. Starting in a forest of large ponderosa pine, the trail quickly opens up to a ridge walk with views of the Cascades. Here I met the Johnson family who were out enjoying a weekend hike in ...

In many cases you can save yourself strokes from your score by simply making better decisions on the golf course.  One situation many players don’t put enough thought into is when they are in between clubs.  Remember some key points when you find yourself in between clubs and your smarter decision-making will be rewarded.
