I remember when I was a kid we used to spend our summers in Black Butte Oregon. At night, in the mountains, away from the lights of the city, the night sky came alive. We would sleep out on the odd occasion and look at the shooting stars and just how different the sky looked. It was so cold at night that we would wake up with frost in our hair (or at least that is how I remember it). I would so love to go back and spend the entire night with someone/people looking at the stars and enjoying their wonder all night (or at least until I pass out). So I was doing a quick look into it and I found this:
For solitude with unrivaled stargazing, rent a U.S. Forest Service fire-watch cabin. The cabin at Fremont Point on Winter Ridge is available all year; the one atop Hagar Mountain, November through May. $25 per night. 541-576-2107 or http://www.fs.fed.us/r6/frewin
If you are interested in getting away from it all, you may wish to visit the Fremont-Winema National Forests in Southern Oregon. Administratively combined in 2002, the Fremont-Winema National Forests offer 2.3 million acres to explore! The heavily timbered western portion of the forests is bordered by the crest of the Cascade Mountain Range and Crater Lake National Park, and stretches east into the Klamath River Basin, an area known for its year-round sunshine. Near the floor of the Basin, the forest opens to vast marshes and meadows associated with Upper Klamath Lake and the Williamson River. To the north and east extensive stands of ponderosa and lodgepole pine grow on deep pumice and ash that blanketed the area during the eruption of Mt. Mazama (now Crater Lake) nearly 7,000 years ago. The eastern portion of the Forests offers expansive views, dramatic cliffs, and solitude. The area is known as Oregon’s Outback, and provides the self-reliant recreationist the opportunity to discover nature in a rustic environment.
The Fremont-Winema National Forests include seven Ranger Districts, with the headquarters located in Lakeview, Oregon.
