Les Schwab Tire HeadQuarters

The other day we drove by the new Les Schwab Tire HeadQuarters to see how things are going, my that place is huge, certainly is going to be nice when the whole project is done. So here is a few photos of what the building was like in Prinville

Les Schwab Tire Centers’ corporate headquarters in Prineville currently employs about 320 people. The company will move those jobs to a new facility in the Juniper Ridge development in Bend, leaving about 800 employees in the operations center in Prineville.

This is what its suppose to look like when its finished, huge huh?
And here are a few photos i took of it

Had to share this photo of the clouds above looks like a crown don't you think?

McKenzie PassPart 5/Whispering Pines Campground

So we continued on to check out one of the campgrounds, we actually thought it was a short distance as they didn't say how far, but turned out to be a long ways, but a pretty drive. Once we found it we were surprised that there wasn't a soul up there, and i am not sure but may not of been for some time, there was garbage in the containers though. For people with horses this is a beautiful area to take them and ride.
Whispering Pines Campground has changed there fees from what the website says.Check that out for directions and any other great things to see on the trails.

I think this is called Skunk Cabbage but does have a beautiful flower.

Part 3 McKenzie Byway

So here is the road to the Observatory i wanted to share the drive with you. So many of the trees are dead and look like there might be a desease on them.Hope you enjoy the ride . Next post will be the Observatory.

This pass only allows vehicles up to 35 ft so motor homes any longer than that can not go there. And to tell ya the truth i wouldn't even think about taking our 30ft motor home thru there. That road is very narrow and in some spots very curvy. So think twice before taking any thing longer than 25ft.
