I never get tired of exploring the Newberry National Volcanic Monument, located just 23 miles south of the Salmon Lodge off Highway 97. Newberry is enormous, ranking as the largest volcano in the Cascades and covering an area as large as Rhode Island. There is no end to the opportunities for outdoor adventure – hiking, canoeing and caving! If the weather is bad, an entire day can be spend in the visitor center there. And if you are into motorcycles (as I am), the drive up Highway 21 to the Paulina Lake area makes for a spectacular but safe twisty journey!
