A beautiful drive, lots of curves, some burned out areas, but still very beautiful. The lava fields in the middle are very interesting. The Dee Wright Observatory was something you will not find elsewhere. Hard to imagine it being built. Proxy falls was a great stop and very nice hike. A very different drive.

We had a beautiful drive up the McKenzie Pass, at times it was quite steep with a gorge at the side. So also a little terrifying (but eh, we’re Dutch so our country is flat). And the enormous lavafields, such a weird sight

We drove the byway counter clockwise starting in Sisters. Lots of cute little shops to explore in Sisters. Santiam Pass is a major road so can get congested. Amazing views of surrounding mountains. Fall colors were amazing. Be sure to stop at Salish Falls. Very accessible via paved trails. McKenzie Pass is the highlight of this scenic byway. Steepy, windy road with vehicle size restrictions. Views of mountains are awesome and when you get near top you are in lava field. Trails and interpretive signs at top and absolutely stunning view of the Sisters. Highly recommend this drive especially McKenzie Pass!

Not forest fires, but volcanic flows created this massive scenic area. Two lane road makes a good bike excursion, not friendly for vehicles over 35' in length. You can park at the overlook and hike an easy trail up to the observation tower. Reminds one of the Malpais area near Grants, NM, but with beautiful mountain views. Not recommended when snowed in, but definitely a memory maker in good weather. Exciting and worth the extra time if you are in the Sisters Oegon area.
