Washboard Road From H-E-Double Hockey Sticks  Sucess!

I was already heading north to Bend, and it was not quite sunset, so I took a nice side-trip to Newberry Crater and Paulina Peak. Nice views at the top. It was really interesting to see the massive lake-filled caldera remnant, below. Make certain to scurry ~14' up the nearby rock outcrop to the true highpoint.

The Paulina Peak Road is the one deterrant for this peak. The road was in good condition... except for the nearly four miles of almost constant washboard effect. It was shaking my car like crazy; my car felt like a human popcorn maker.

This was the sixth of seven Top 100 Oregon peaks I summited during a 3-1/2 day timeframe.
