With the crisp winter sunshine pouring in, so is the inspiration for our winter adventures. To some, it’s time to dust off the skis, grab your dog and hit the backcountry. To others, the season is here to appreciate every second of winter sunshine in perfect climbing temperatures.
Central Oregon is home to limitless rivers, towering mountains, endless trails, and unforgettable Rock Climbing. Along with world class climbing areas like Smith Rock and Trout Creek in our back yard, Central Oregon has established itself as a true dog-friendly community. It’s no surprise to find a small herd of dogs running between your legs even when visiting local climbing company Metolius in Bend. It seems that we can’t help it – Climbers love dogs. From enjoying our favorite place, to living the lifestyle that brings us together, we find harmony with our best friends at our side.
Whether they’re wrapped in our puffy jackets, or running around scouting for tree-tigers, we’re lucky to have them there. Here are some of our local legends from head to tail:
