Things to watch for in Warm Springs, Oregon

I got a chance to go out to the Warm Springs Indian Reservation a few weeks ago for work a few weeks ago. Since I was working, I didn’t actually get the chance to go out and explore and do things, but saw lots of cool stuff from the passenger seat of a vintage Ford Mustang.

Here are some things to watch out for while passing through Warm Springs Indian Reservation:

Beautiful sunrises and sunsets.


Sunrise from Kahneeta Resort


Old building in various forms of deterioration.


Old church


Mesas and plateaus for days.


Beauty in the bleakness



Funny faces and caves in the canyons.


Faces in the mountain


And my personal favorite – wild horses!


A herd of wild horses


We saw one lone horse on set the day we were filming. He walked by the old church down to a stream further down and then back up. I looked when we passed that corner on the way home, hoping to see another horse or two and was disappointed not to see any. Then, just a bit further up the road was a whole herd of them! Whoohoo!

We also thought we saw an eagle soaring ahead while we were waiting to get ready to start filming. He was a long way away, so I couldn’t tell for sure, but how cool is that?

There are so many cool rock formations and caves. I really wanted to go explore, but it’s probably for the best I didn’t or I would have caused my cyst to act up again. As it is, I made it 7 1/2 weeks before having the pain flare up. Sadly, it came back to bite me in the butt, as always… Le sigh.
