On the 3rd day we started our road-trip to Sunriver. Visited Multnomah Falls along the way. Awesome! Spent the night at an amazing resort in the High Desert - Kah-nee-ta, a Native American business
Our 2nd road-trip night was at an even more amazing resort, Sunriver Lodge, with fireplaces in each room. Snow from a recent fall was clumped around. And when we'd walked to the village, it started to snow for the 1st time, along with rain, which had us holed up in the Inn enjoying a drink and hummus with jalapenos until we could brave the walk back.
Snack dinner in our rooms watching Jan's team - the Ducks lose to Stanford (Gridiron). Starting to understand the game, (Michael).
Checked out of the Lodge and visited Bob who drove us to Fort Rock, amazing rock formation jutting out of vast plains. Experienced our first good cover of dry (powder) snow, Brenda tried real hard to get "snowflakes that stay on my nose and eye lashes". We also visited an historical village and some mountain lakes. Thanks Bob & Jan for all the sightseeing & hospitality. Loving the photo opportunities, cool (cold) mountain air and vastly different scenery.
