Crooked River Gorge

Crooked River Gorge, eastern Oregon, Redmond, Madras, Terrebone,
    A sign at Crooked River Gorge, Oregon - "Warning! Hazardous Cliff - Many Dogs Have Died Here! Put your dog back in the vehicle!"  That's incredibly sad.

When you walk up to the edge of the gorge at Peter Skene Ogden Park, you can see just how hazardous it is.  It's several hundred feet, straight down a sheer vertical cliff face, with just a low stone wall between you and eternity.

Actually, it makes you want to take the whole family back to the vehicle.

Getting back to the sign, though - that dog looks so fearless and strong, as he vaults over the wall to his doom.  And what's up with those birds, anyway?
