I just love Fort Rock. If you visit in late May, all the flowers are in bloom. The yellow ones smell like cinnamon and licorice. You can hear people talking from half a mile away, and when you look down at the rocks, you’ll notice they have a bubbly texture. Left over from the volcano that exploded there 50,000-100,000 years ago.

Before I hiked, I stopped at a diner right before the road to Fort Rock. They made me a BLT and wrapped it up like it was homemade and gave me a bag of chips, too. Sitting on the rim of this magnificent sight, eating a sandwich, and smelling the flowers made it all so much better.
