Title: HWY 395 in Oregon
Post by: Dan_E_Boye on April 16, 2006, 09:16:23 pm
Has anyone here ridden highway 395 from Lakeview to John Day?  If so, what did you think of it?  It sounds and looks from the photos I've seen like it's wonderfully desolate and almost devoid of traffic.  

I'm thinking of starting my Trans Am with a slight detour from Eugene to Crater Lake and east to Lakeview, then north to John Day to join the route.

It is exactly as you imagine - lonely, desolate (espec the segment bewteen Lakeview and Burns) and devoid of traffic. The part between Burns and John Day is slightly more wooded, very pretty, and still very little traffic. Have fun.
