How lucky can you get? My sister and I just got back from a road trip across central Oregon. We were supposed to be going to Bend, and we did get pretty close. We made it, more appropriately, to Sisters, Oregon; a cute hybrid of real history and trendy boutiques. We wandered around town and checked out the art, but had the most fun at Sisters Bakery.
We spent a few nights in the high desert country; land of bare soil and gnarley old junipers. On the way back to Portland it was ponderosa pine until we came over the pass, back into the rainy spruce-hemlock forests, stunning with the gold and scarlet maple trees. I put some pictures of our trip in an album below.
I love traveling with my sister and I love going "Out West," even when it requires traveling about a thousand miles South and another five hundred East!
