Off for a long weekend retreat, planned when I thought a lack of sun would be weighing down on us. Happy to be wrong, we left sunny Portland for sunny Bend.
Three Fingered Jack
Fishermen on the Deschutes
Railroad Bridge over the Crooked River at Peter Skene Ogden Viewpoint
Gotta love a palindrome!
In Bend now, at the Old Mill District
The Hubster’s favorite.
Margarita and super fabulous Relleno at Hola!
We stayed at Brasada Ranch. Lovely and picturesque, it was everything we could have asked for. This was the awe-inspiring view from our room, with me waking early to watch the sun light the Sisters each morning.
I have never seen so many Robins! They are VERY keen on juniper berries.
gnarled old juniper
Fake smile and, quite possibly, the best pimento cheese ever at Drake. They have pretty snazzy cocktails, tip-top service, and a bad-ass roasted trout, too.
Homeward bound through fog-laden Prineville.
Mount Hood, again – jiggity-jig!
