If you're looking for an interesting family outing, now is the time of year to "view" some spectacular local wildlife.
Outdoor adventurer Gary Lewis says the best time to see the natives of Central Oregon are dusk and dawn.
"One of my favorite drives is just out past the top of Prineville Reservoir, along that Post Paulina Highway. And it's a good place to watch for deer and coyotes and other animals that frequent that area."
Lewis says the deer and elk are coming down from the high country, and it's exciting to get pretty close to these creatures.
