Oregon is famous for its scenic beauty, and Fremont Point is no exception. Located near Summer Lake, this hidden gem offers breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape. The destination was originally Summer Lake in the Great Basin. The lake dries up the farther from spring it is. So, it was pretty dry. The vistas are still stunning and worth a visit, however.
A sign pointed up a dirt road to Fremont Point, and we decided to go see what was there. It was a pretty steep climb, so we figured it’d be a great viewpoint. It was, but the best part was the drive up. The hillsides were covered with this fairytale landscape of dead trees and flowers. It was incredibly beautiful and surreal. Rarely are we disappointed by exploring a road by chance and seeing where it goes. This one was certainly worthwhile.
The landscapes were stunning and it was so still and quiet. There were a lot of places to pull over and go exploring. There were vast vistas and smaller copses to discover, and all worth the time.
You can see a wee bit of water through the trees, which what was left of Summer Lake.
It’s always splendid to find a hidden gem when exploring the lesser-traveled places in Oregon. Oregon certainly has a lot of beauty to offer. Hope you find some spectacular places to explore where you are.
