Balloons Over Bend
If you haven't visited Bend, OR, I highly recommend planning a trip for a recharging vacation. Bend is an outdoor enthusiast's playground. In 15-30 mins you have access to skiing, hiking, rock climbing, rafting, paddle boarding, golfing, and so much more. We flew into Eugene, OR on a Friday morning. In minutes we were on the road, drove through the most beautiful lush forest before venturing into a volcanic rock valley (360* breathtaking views of snow capped mountains) and then were white water rafting by noon. We hit the river again for some paddle boarding that evening, and dined at a wonderful dinner downtown before crashing and packing in more action on Saturday and Sunday. We woke up in the morning to hot air balloons over the river (image above), in one of the most relaxing settings I've experienced to in a while. My next trip is already on the books for a winter excursion to Mount Bachelor. How can you resist when it's only 30 mins away? :)
