Hike to the Hornito

A short drive southeast of Bend, Oregon is the Hornito. A Hornito is a small volcano. Check out an active Hornito.

This one is extinct and stands about 15 feet tall. This makes a great day expedition with kids.

Looking down inside, about a 10 foot drop

One part of this trip not shown in these photos was the journey in. Late season corn snow proved too deep for my Subaru and despite Vern's warnings, I drove like an idiot into a foot of the stuff. I had to hike back to the highway and get help. Back several hours later, we pressed on and arrived at the Hornito.
