On Lake Simtustus, Oregon I lucked out with a waterfront campsite at Pelton Park. Sunset brought the buzzards in to roost - directly above my tent! All that night I dreamt of wings as the great birds shifted in the treetops above me.
The next morning I hiked up the canyon for a stretch to be greeted with this view.
Oregon surprised me. Through all the roads I traveled, it was highway 197 between Bend and the Gorge that kept taking my breath away. I was surprised because I had lived SO close to there for years, but had never been that particular way.
I will return. Soon.
