Mt Bachelor Bend Oregon ski

Being raised one of the top 10 outdoors towns in the US will spoil you. Bend, Oregon is a great place to hit the trails mountain biking, make some turns on Mt. Bachelor, or play water sports in the many lakes and rivers.

Often after work I would head up to Mt. Bachelor to XC or backcountry ski before the sun tucked away behind the mountains. This shot was taken a few years back after a recent dusting of snow…to say the least it makes me miss the winters back home!
