Economically, it started as a logging town but is now identified as a “warm inviting mountain getaway” for many outdoor sports, including mountain biking, fly fishing, hiking, camping, rock climbing, white-water rafting, skiing, snowboarding, and golf. The Cascades field area is located in the high desert on the eastern edge of the Cascade Range along the Deschutes River. Here the Ponderosa pine forest transitions into the high desert, characterized by arid land, juniper, sagebrush, and bitterbrush. Wildlife is abundant, including antelope, elk, porcupine, badger, Golden and Bald Eagles to name a few.
