North America » United States » Oregon » Bend May 14th 2007

We arrived in Bend Friday night and visited with LeAnne’s friend Marja. We had a good time visiting with her & LeAnne enjoyed catching up. We decided that we'd spend the next day letterboxing around the area to be able to visit the local parks. Our first full day in Bend we spent down at the Lava Cast Forest and the Lava River Cave. Bend, Oregon is the site of massive volcanic activity that took place over 6,000 years ago. This created an entire ‘forest’ of volcanic rock that came from the Newberry Volcano. We walked around the area down a trail that cuts through the porous rock and takes you to a viewpoint overlooking the valley on to Mount Bachelor. The area has a few seedlings here and there, but for the most part ... read more

Sarah and I will be leaving for Paris on Tuesday. We are both a little stressed but also really excited. i haven't been sleeping that well so i've been like a zombie at work. we have to go to Seattle tomorrow (sunday) night so that we can be at the regional passport agency at 8:00 AM to get my passport. I applied for it in February and was told it would only take 6-7 weeks to get it, but alas, after 10 weeks it has still not arrived, so off to Seattle it is. Talk about cutting it close! The plane leaves around eleven on Tuesday. I will be taking Nyquil and trying to sleep through a good portion of the plane ride in order to combat jet-lag as well as my fear of flying. Everything ... read more

Well it’s been a while since last posting and I can’t say that I’ve done much traveling. It seems that Portland and I have grown attached to one another over the past couple of weeks. Mike and Kate have been gracious enough to give Otis and I a place to call home while here (their old apartment), and I have been helping them move into their new home. In addition to that, I’ve taken care of some errands and explored the city a bit in my free time. I have to mention Oregon Spring Company and Mike, who got me out of a small jam. It seems that in my packing for this endeavor, I managed to slightly overload the truck. I noticed from the beginning, it was sitting somewhat lower in the rear than I ... read more

This past week, we finally made our much anticipated trip to the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument. Read more about this gorgeous place at John Day Website Moreover, there are at least three separate sections of the John Day Fossil Beds, and our focus was on the Painted Hills section near Mitchell Oregon. As described online, the Painted Hills Unit contains 3,132 acres of scenic marvels unique even in the Pacific Northwest. Located 9 miles northwest of Mitchell, and 75 miles east of Bend, the Painted Hills are visited year-round. Most years, the peak of wildflower season in late April to early May is spectacular. The yellows, golds, blacks, and reds of the Painted Hills are best seen in the late afternoon, but our visit was in the early morning when the shadows appeared ... read more

Ahoy! Well Otis and I have made it to "The City of Roses" Portland, Oregon. We arrived a couple of days ago and have been chillin' with the Castleberry's, my friends Mike and Kate for those of you "not in the know". I'm diggin this area so far, it's been a bit odd being back in a highly populated city...since I left SA the largest pop. town I had been in was only about 10K people, until Bend (75K) and now Portland (around half a mil). Traffic lights and general congestion are two things I was really enjoying, not having to deal with on my trek up until this point, but oh well, it's not that bad. I am getting a bit spoiled, as I'm going on a solid week of sleeping in a real bed, ... read more
