Travelog 5

It's a Bend rock.
I spent a few days in Bend on my trip out West. My sister is building a house there, so we traveled there to check everything out. What magnificent views she is going to have out all her windows. I spent about 40 minutes photographing inside and out of her new home. This rock is in their backyard. They are going to have wonderful views of Mt. Bachelor too, where they will ski often. I did find out that the mountain got its name because it 'stands apart' from the Three Sisters, a group three volcanic mountains to the northwest. If you've never been Oregon let me fill you in, the state is just chock full of big rocks, mountains and trees.
And yes, I have already picked out my room.
What a view I'll have!

  15. Trying to remove that rock would be far more work than it would be worth, so it's fortunate that it looks good!

  21. How exciting for your sister and family. Bend is a nice area. They look to have a wonderfu view there indeed.

    I have been to Oregon and it's a wonderful state with gorgeous scenery. I live in WA only 17 miles for the OR border. We have lots of gorgeous scenery here too.
    So if you are ever my way look me up.
