Medford to Bend

We awoke in the trusty GT to cool weather and took off early towards Crater Lake. I loved Oregon as soon as we crossed the border. It has the most beautiful tall trees that you have to drive through. We stopped creek side for breaky and found heaps of family's camped out with everyone knee deep in water. It turns out to be salmon season. Fishing is taken very seriously in Oregon.

Onward we pressed into the hills. Slow and steadily the GT took us up to Crater Lake which sits at 6500 ft. Earlier our plan had been to get out and ride the rim however the 40 degree temps and the large amount of snow on the roads changed our minds quite quickly.

We came back down the mountain and continued our trip into Bend. What a magic little town this place is. It has the best river running straight through the middle of town. It was the Bite on Bend festival and we indulged in a little road side ribs!!!!
