Bungee jumping in Terrebonne, Oregon

IMG_0459

These were taken at the Peter Skene Ogden State Scenic Overlook, just off Route 97 north of Redmond, Oregon.  I stopped here Saturday on my way down to Bend but at that point it was about 7 o’clock in the evening and the shadows were long so I came back today to get better pictures of the canyon and, bingo, discovered this bungee outfitter set up waiting for victims, er, customers.  The bridges span the Crooked River, which is 300 feet below.

The top photo is looking east from the pedestrian bridge towards the vehicle bridge which carries Route 97 over the gorge.  To the west there is another bridge which carries rail traffic (there are LOTS of trains transporting cargo here in the Northwest).
