Pine Mountain Observatory TOUR BACK  to PMO Page
HWY 20

You leave Bend heading east on Highway 20, skirting the south side of Pilot Butte. The Pilot Butte Drive-In has great chow. Did you remember to bring your warm clothing, drinking water and a small flashlight covered with red paper? Make sure you have enough gasoline to make the roundtrip back to Bend as there is no fuel out here! Your trip to the Observatory will take about an hour.

The high desert is fairly flat and open, there is a hill at milepost 19. You will drive 26 miles east from Bend on Highway 20 to Millican.
