Oh Brother, part ll

It's been a whirlwind of a visit which is, sadly, drawing to an end.
We have had a great time with Utley and hope we didn't wear him out schlepping him from vista to view point to lava bed to mountain top and back! 
Here are some photos from this weeks activities.

We walked along the river trail, Deschutes River Canyon area
A lovely sky with the Sisters in the background

The canyon, a river runs through it...

The river looks tiny from way up here.

The guys, on the new First Street Rapids Bridge

On a calmer part of the river.

 We drove over McKenzie Pass, stopping at the Mt Washington view point, to the Dee Wright Observatory

Jim and Utley stand before the lava floes and Mt Washington

Looking thru the observatory's windows

A giant wall of lava
A trip to Benham Falls

and the top of Lava Butte on the way back....
We went to lunch on the top of Mt Bachelor
The view from the chairlift

High elevation photography

The chairlift seems so high up when there is no snow on the ground
Hey! No horseplay on the chair!!
A lovely walk along Todd Lake

Mt Bachelor in the distance
A visit to Sawyer Park

Drake Park
Music and food in the park
We have had a great time with Utley and hope he has enjoyed himself as well. It was fun to be a tourist in our own town too.
