Road Trip #2: Ricahrdson's Rock Ranch!

Aug 25, 2011 update on P71's 2006 Mazda Mazda5

For Mrs. Javelin’s birthday we went on a surprise road trip to Richardson’s Rock Ranch, just north of Madras, OR. It’s about a 400 mile round trip to central Oregon over a mountain pass and into some frankly gorgeous scrub land with fantastic fault lines and ridges. We took the Falcon, which performed great! The Ranch itself is a working cattle ranch with geode pits where you can dig out your own geodes that they can cut open on site (highly recommended!). The best part for cars on the trip? All of the roads at the ranch are gravel! The 5 does a pretty good impression of a stage rally machine!
