Smith Rock, a semi-desert paradise in central Oregon, must-see.
Already back, and I would go back to Smith Rock, there is so much to do, if like me you are climbing enthusiasts, it is paradise, more than 1800 routes. The first reported accretion dates back to 1935 by Johnny Bissell, making it the cradle of climbing in the United States, plus the first US 5.14 in 1986 by J.B. Tribout.
But it's not just rock climbing to do in Smith Rock, you can practice different activities in this beautiful park, such as horse riding, hiking, river rafting and even watching the Royal Eagles, You can easily see the nests on the cliff, as far as birds are concerned, I was not so lucky, but with a little patience it should not be difficult. Nearby activities are very varied, visit Lava Cave about 30 minutes, or possibility of skiing at Mount Bachelor within a one-hour drive.
In terms of housing, several options are available to you, from camping to comfortable hotels by dressing Airbnb, I even spotted a Boondocking in the corner.
Here are some references that will be useful if you plan to visit this corner of the country.
