I traveled the Cascade Lakes Hwy. all day today. It is the most beautiful area and road I have ever ridden! There are around 100 lakes all up at 4000-5000 ft. and easily accessible from Bend, OR within an hour (by car). I only could see about 8-10 lakes as I traveled down the road but with the high snow covered peaks all around and the wonderful volcanic landscapes they all were just spectacular. It made my 71 miles a pleasure to ride, at least until I had to climb Mt. Bachelor at mile 50. Oh well you have to pay to play as they say.
The most amazing thing that happened today
