Bend, OR (Click on Pictures to Enlarge)
I was looking thru our blog viewing statistics today and found a rather interesting commentary on what readers tune in to our blog for. I had always hoped that folks liked to learn about the places we've visited and the sights we've seen. Apparently, that is not necessarily the case. Of all of the blogs viewed during the past 2 1/2 months, here are the top 4 blogs viewed in order of highest first.
Waste Elimination, Sorry That's Waste Disposal
First Trip to Yellowstone NP
Sioux Falls Bike Trail
West Gate Entrance into Yellowstone NP and Teton NP
I'll make no further comment, just seemed somewhat peculiar to me.
Over the past few days we've been able to get our SeaEagle Paddleski out on several local waterways and we even did some tubing for a few miles. Sorry, no pictures available during the tubing as I don't have a waterproof camera anymore.
To show how the cart actually works, I recruited my lovely wife to take the Paddleski for a short jaunt down the road in front of our campsite.
There's a lot of very nice homes along the river. Colors tend to be all brown, or at least some shade of brown out here. Very earthy!
Cascade Lakes Scenic Byway to Sparks Lake. This is a lake which was formed long ago when the lava flows from Mt. Bachelor stopped. The lake has no natural ingress or egress of waters other than rain and snow. The water level decreases in the summer as the water escapes through the porous lava in the lake. As you can see, many folks seemed to have the same idea yesterday about floating around on the lake.
We had a great time on the river and the lake. There are many, many lakes in this area which we'll have to save for another time as we'll be leaving in a few days. Just as well, however, as I know that we'll return again and have new adventures to look forward to.
Thanks for stopping by to take a look!
Nice job on the toter! Looks like you are having fun on the water in your boat! And thanks - I do like the photo of the guys on the green!ReplyDelete
Great pics...we're still taking notes. Love your transporter. The cart you built seems very functional as well ;)ReplyDelete
Dandy little piece of work to haul your ski and you are sure getting some great shots courtesy of it. Except for the waste disposal, I read it for all the things you do :-)ReplyDelete
It seems you all are enjoying the water, but some of the other places were prettier.ReplyDelete
Sure, make Karen do all the work! ;c)ReplyDelete
You certainly are getting your monies worth out of your Sea Eagle. Nice areas to paddle around that you wouldn't see otherwise.
Had to laugh at the top post in your list...
We will be pulling into Bend later today. Sounds like we will be passing each other. I had no idea that the Bend area has so many lakes in the area.ReplyDelete
