This is going to be pretty cool if you are into astronomy and cosmology, or if you just really like looking out at the night sky in Central Oregon and marveling at it’s beauty.
Astronomy lecturer Scott Fisher will reveal the wonders of the Universe during a lecture on “The Cosmic Perspective.” Using images and videos from observatories including the Hubble Space Telescope and the Pine Mountain Observatory, Scott will use an easy-to-grasp scale that relates us to the actual size of the Universe we inhabit.

Crow’s Feet Commons, Deschutes Brewery and Dynafit have teamed up to present Central Oregon’s first Ski Mo Race Series for 2018.
SKI-MO (or ski mountaineering) is a skiing discipline that involves climbing mountains either on skis or carrying them, depending on the steepness of the ascent, and then descending on skis. The Crow’s Feet/Deschutes races are a combination of a groomed slope ascent, combined with a “Dirksen Derby” banked slalom descent. Think Cyclocross on skis. More Info Here!
This will be a good time to be with fellow snow enthusiast and participate in this new event. The races will vary in lengths depending on the categories races and each lap will take about 10-15 minutes. The length of time…
