I'm still determined to get this trip documented...here is day 5; Bend, OR
One thing I found interesting about Oregon is that there are very dry areas east of the Cascade mountains. As we drove out of the Colombia gorge/Hood River area we entered the high desert. There were lots of farms, wineries, orchards, etc. I really didn't take a lot of photos in Bend. We arrived late in the afternoon, checked into our lodging, walked around the downtown, had dinner, and crashed early. We had spent that same morning hiking more than I have ever hiked before and I was exhausted. We both wish we had spent another night in Bend as there was alot to do and see, but we had reservations for Saturday night in Klamath Falls that we couldn't cancel.
On Saturday morning I slept in while Brian went on a hike. Here are some photos that he took.
Crater Lake was our next destination. It is truly a spectacular sight to see. You're driving along in a normal forest and then you round a turn in the road and there it is. Breathtaking!
just because it makes me laugh!
on our way out of Crater Lake National Park we saw this waterfall along the side of the road!
Onto Klamath Falls where we stayed at the Devonridge B&B. This was only the second time we stayed at a B&B and it was lovely. On our way to Klamath Falls I took a few photos:
Around our B&B
We had one of the best meals of our entire trip in Klamath Falls at Bel Tramonto. We began our meal with a grilled Caesar salad..YUM!
Then we split a very decadent bowl of lobster mac and cheese
I ordered fillet mignon with garlic mashed potatoes and Brian ordered prosciutto wrapped scallops with asparagus, both which were excellent
