along the Deschutes (part one)

The area around Bend, Oregon had been on my travel radar for quite awhile.
Last summer the windows of opportunity opened for me to finally spend some time here.
I start by exploring the lovely Deschutes river.
Trails intertwine along the pristine waters. I take in the greenery and the rock cliffs, the clear waters full of trout and crawdads.
Bend is an outdoor enthusiast’s mecca, and I make my pilgrimage in the only way that works for me…
one foot in front of the other.
