Bend, Oregon

A few weekends ago, some friends and I embarked on our yearly trip down to Bend, OR, for lots of beer, food and friends. Oh yeah, and some nature, too. Here are some shots I took from our trip, in photo and caption format.


Finally got to eat the Rainbow Cake! Molly made the cake (which had an awesome frothy beer mug made of frosting on top) for Nate's birthday that we celebrated while on the trip. She didn't follow the recipe from that site for the cake - she made her own white cake instead. The one in the recipe sounds nasty.




The main purpose of our trip was to tour several local breweries. We hit up the Deschutes Brewery, the Bend Brewing Company and the Full Sail Brewery. It was especially cool for Nate and Molly since they've recently started brewing their own stuff.


The punishment for passing out early is being serenaded by the loudest, most drunken rendition of The Star-Spangled Banner that the group can muster. Obviously, I fell asleep way early.



On our last full day, Chris and I decided to meet his cousin and drive to Mt. Bachelor to go tubing! Unfortunately I couldn't get a picture, but basically you take a special "tube lift" up the hill and there are 6 or so tracks that run side by side down part of the mountain. At first I thought it looked lame, but you really get a lot of speed! My face was the only thing exposed, causing ice to build up in my beard. That was weird, but I am glad I had that layer of protection.

It was probably my favorite trip down there, out of the past three years. I hope next year can top it!

Hogan has produced into the market a shoe that will fit the beginner as well as the professional Hogan scarpe donna and the skilled skateboarder. Of course, there is no need to be a Hogan scarpe uomo with no cool anymore. Hogan uomo have made sure of that.
