We have focused most of our hikes in the Cascades during our time living in Central Oregon.  However, the Ochocos, east of Prinveille, offer wonderful, less traveled hikes with beautiful vistas and interesting geology.It seems that a year into the Covid-19 pandemic, we are finding ourselves repeating the hikes we took a year ago. Steins Pillar in the Ochocos is a fairly short, fairly easy hike with an impressive end at the 350 foot pillar, a volcanic remnant over 38 million years old.  Probably the most concerting issue getting to the trail head is the two mile mostly single lane dirt road (within potholes) which can be somewhat sketchy going around corners, hoping no one else is coming the other way.  But if you make it to the actual trail head without incident, the four-mile in and ou...

I have had several people interested in obtaining a USDA home loan for property in Crook County.  I've put together a map of part of the county that should help in identifying areas that qualify for this program.  As you might know - it's one of the last TRUE 100% home loans available - and it doesn't have PMI!  The rates are comparable to FHA, so it's a very affordable payment!  You do not have to have PRESTINE credit, but we generally want to see scores above 580, and 12 months of "clean credit."

Portland developer announces plans for Prineville resort Resort development to be first in city limits A Portland developer announced plans last week to build an upscale, nearly 300 unit hotel and condominium resort in Prineville's west side near Meadow Lakes Golf Course to be called RiverGate.   "As we promote the resort we want to promote Prineville," Developer Jim Stotler said during a presentation to the Prineville-Crook County Chamber of Commerce.   Stotler and his wife Jan bought a home in Crook County about a year and a half ago and have been working on a plan for the development since that time.    The 15-acre plot where the development will be located is across the street from the Crook County Fairgrounds with Rimrock Park to the north, Les Schwab Fields and the Crook County Am...
