After the hike we went to work on our brewery passport program. We visited another brewery, got our stamps and our prizes (t-shirts this time). Also saw this interesting animal and this cool painting of a wolf sharing a campfire. My roommate thought the guy on the right looked like a young and thinner Kenny Rogers. What do you think blog pals?
Day two was just as busy as day one. Again, we started with a river hike (you can thank the fishing bear for the suggestion).
Off we went back to the Deschutes River. Our goal was Dillon Falls about five miles downstream.
|If you look hard toward the back you can see Lava Is|
Lava Island was our first big landmark. It was an island of lava (creative naming eh?).
The water was rushing in some places and calm in others.
Dillon Falls was our destination and also our lunch spot. What? Only a peanut butter and jelly sandwich? What no chips? No trail mix? No cheese? I am going to have a serious talk with the chef of the house and make sure this injustice gets fixed.
Day three was just as busy as day one and two. Sadly, we had to leave and start heading back home. On the positive side we had a nice waterfall hike planned for midway home. This hike, Shelburg Falls, is a new one for us. I have to admit I am a sucker for foxglove (go figure?) and the foxglove is starting to bloom. As you can see the invasive scotch broom is blooming too.
We reached the falls pretty early in the hike and since it was sunny my roommates decided to continue on with the hike. As you can see the sun is shining through the trail. Aah what a relaxing weekend although I must admit I am tired and need a good nights rest. Happy Memorial Day!
