Taking advantage of the beautiful fall weather we’re having in Oregon this year means a road trip, and we are in eastern Oregon this weekend. The geography is very different from Portland. Yesterday, we visited the Newberry Caldera and climbed the Big Obsidian Flow, a 1,300 year-old, outpouring of black, glass-like stone, valued by native communities for making arrowheads and knives. I saw a snake, warming itself in the last of the autumn sun.
