Beautiful Bend Oregon

Bend is a paradise for outdoor activities. Between visits to the brewpubs we did a bit of hiking and sightseeing in the area. Here is a taste of what's available just a short ride from town.

We took a walk around Sparks Lake in the Cascade Mts.
Mount Bachelor got some fresh snow the day before.

There is this place outside of Redmond OR which looks a lot like southern Utah. It is supposedly a world-class rock-climbing location.

Smith Rock State Park, a mini version of Zion in Oregon

Any climbers today?
A nice hike at Shevlin Park in Bend OR
Bend is a paradise if you like hiking, biking, beer and good food. We strongly considered this as a place to settle down, but it's too cold in the winter. But we'll definitely be back for a visit!
