Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument and Copco Road
Jackson County, OR

I’ve never driven the six mile dirt road to the Box O Ranch in the monument and Rattlesnake Spring before. So, I decided to give it a try. I’m glad I did. The dirt road is the Copco Road which had blooming dogbane the last mile and a half. That area was loaded with a few thousand Lindsey’s Skippers!
