One of the most scenic areas of Central Oregon surely has to be along the Lower Crooked River. Chimney Rock overlooks a bunchgrass landscape that has been etched by the beautiful cliff-rimmed canyon of the Crooked River. A hiking trail begins on the canyon floor and winds it’s way up to the rock formation providing several great opportunities to photograph the unique rock formation and the wild and scenic river below. The trail, like all of the Lower Crooked Wild & Scenic River area, is managed by BLM and it starts directly across the road from the Chimney Rock Campground.

A dragon boat team consists of 20 paddlers sitting two abreast, plus a Cox who steers the dragon boat from the rear and a drummer who sits at the front. The team of paddlers work in unison to propel the boat forwards from a standing start, the aim being to reach the finish line in the fastest time. Generally a race consists of between 4 and 6 boats. They usually have brightly decorated designs that range anywhere from 40 to 100 feet in length, with the front end shaped like open-mouthed dragons, and the back end with a scaly tail. Boat were traditionally made in the Pearl River Delta region of China\’s southern Guangdong Province out of teak wood to various designs and sizes.
