These pictures are from our weekend getaway to Bend, Oregon a few weeks ago. A quirky town that could not be any more different than LA. We were looking to do some skiing (Bend is 17 miles from Mt. Bachelor), but also to visit a place we had never been to before. Home to over 20 breweries, micro distilleries, restaurants using locally sourced ingredients and with extensive gluten free menus, trees, trees and more trees, outdoor activities aplenty and of course more deer than I've ever seen in SoCal (their grace took my breath away). Our favorite find was McMenamins Old St. Francis School - a Catholic school turned hotel/bar/movie theater - their Old Fashioned's were superb. When we first arrived, there was not speck of snow on the ground in Bend, but on the day we were leaving, we woke up to a winter wonderland. It was a beautiful sendoff.
