Ochoco Mountains-Mill Creek Wilderness-Crook County

It was mid-February and I wanted to get my young boys to appreciate winter camping. So we headed into Mill Creek Wilderness in the Ochoco Mountains above Prineville, Oregon.

View of Steins Pillar from the valley of Mill Creek. This is an 350 foot tall stone that is comprised of volcanic ash produced by of the ancient volcanic eruptions of ash that settled in the ancient inland sea and compacted into stone. The stone all washed away except the pillar!

Drake hikes past a burn area from long ago.
