Portland, Oregon likes to keep it weird, eat from trucks, and paint everything white. The state of Oregon has so much to offer, but this time around we explored within the city limits, window-shopping, enjoying parks, over-caffeinating, and filling our bellies.
Bend, Oregon is a big playground; there's way too much to do. This is a healthy problem, I presume. Bendite's pride is a "work hard, play harder" attitude. I mean, trail running, microbrews, and kayaks all in the same day? Yes, of course!
Matt and I set out around 6:42pm for the trails. The mustard was wild, blooming over everything on the hills. Running is a release for me — a way to clear my head and decompress. Good company and quality gear made for an enjoyable time in California. Below are some photos from the trails.
