The weather in the Bend area, and around the area for about 100 miles, is questionable, at least for the next few days.

Be prepared for snow, have a dependable vehicle, don't take any short cuts as those short cuts will be CLOSED! Be sure to have adequate clothing, food, blankets, for everyone concerned, don't take a questionable vehicle, as it will FAIL you when you least need it... If you are not experienced with traveling in questionable conditions, meaning SNOW and lots of it, you may want to think about next summer, when the Bend area will be wonderful! Don't let family emotions over ride your making sensible choices right now.

For your help, here is a great link to snow cams, and other cameras along the high travel roads in Oregon. I depend on them when am considering a trip over the Oregon mountain passes.


The images are updated every 5 minutes or snow, and when you cannot see a picture, is is NIGHT TIME! :rolleyes:

In any case, be smart, have fun, and find lotsa gold when it is practical to do so!

Hey John,

These folks might be able to help you out...


Seem like a helpful bunch.


thanks bunk, lots of gd info there. ill check it out thoroughly.looks like i might be in luck with some of that info. just hope the weather clears up some and gives me a chance.after some reserch and talking with the moderator there bunk. looks like my gf property is sittin on an old achient river gravel deposit with real rich history.im definately excited to pan the creek for sampling and do some detecting on the land and hillsides.the good thing is, her family was already wealthy, so there wasnt any mining done on the property or in the creeks running through it.thanks for that website again. i may just get me something going there.
