I love it here in the summer, so it's not very often I venture away. There's so much to do and so little time. With the exception of a quick trip to Bend in June (which is pretty much as fun as here), and a week on the Oregon Coast for Lo's dance nationals, we've been playing around here.
Lots of paddle boarding, hiking, floating, and working with some of our favorites at the Humane Society.
Photos...lots of them
Bend. My two recommendations, book through Bend Cottages and eat at Jacksons Corner (the original on the west side). Also, grab a beer (Boneyard RPM IPA is always a good choice) and maybe food at the Lot.....just because it's cool.
