I am not through posting pictures from my camping trip to Central Oregon two weeks ago ;) This one is of Sherars Falls on the Deschutes River. Sherar’s Falls is a traditional fishing site used by the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs. Purchased by the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs in the 1970s, the falls and lands adjacent to them have been put into trust. Currently, the Bureau of Land Management maintains the lands for the Tribe, however, tribal members continue to build their scaffols and fish for salmon at the falls.
