My First Summer in Central Oregon

It was a good-by to the next door neighbor's horse and on the road to Central Oregon.















Up early this morning.… So many choices for riding today…. The first of many. Coffee was in order and just enjoying the rays of sunshine coming through the kitchen window. Mer and I are in a charming neighborhood… the smell of freshly cut lawn, a couple of kids on their bikes and the scent of the honeysuckle shrub just outside the window, seems like a distant vacation. How excited I am for our first summer here in Bend…. Nestled on the sunny side of the Cascades.

Plans are to meet a fellow V-Strom rider, Mudbutt in Redmand, Oregon for breakfast then ride around the area for a few hours.
Just a few pictures to share….

Rode to Smith Rock State Park, up to Culver to Lake Billy Chinook to Peter Ogden Scenic Viewpoint and a back road home to Bend. Breathtaking mountain views.



Artists are inspired by the natural beauty and the gorgeous high desert landscape.



















Today….


Life is Good
