Crooked River Watershed Photos

The Crooked River Watershed is a diverse landscape with deep canyons, high mountain meadows and arid deserts. If you have traveled Hwy 97 between Madras and Redmond, visited Smith Rock State Park or headed into the desert east of Bend, you have already been to the Crooked River Watershed. If you haven’t had a chance to visit our watershed, these photos will help give you an idea of what you are missing! We will occasionally add more photos, so come back again to discover new vistas of this diverse landscape.
