Today was Fiber Market Day in Prineville, a town about 40 miles from Bend. We have been looking forward to going since they advertised that is was for spinners, knitters, and FELTERS! yay!
Nothing like seeing the roving in person, feeling with your hands, seeing the true colors.
Plus the added bonus of having the fiber producing critters there! So off we went.

We had a nice time at the market, and glad we went. Since we were in the area we decided to drive along a scenic byway to a hiking area. The Crooked River Canyon is a river walled in by towering layer-cake basalt cliffs. The hike takes you up a juniper and sage canyon, across a plateau to Chimney Rock.
|That's where we are hiking up to!|
