Interim Day

No "real" activity today as we transition into another mode. We filled some time with chores and scouring a few bike shops in Eugene while my bike was having its face lift. We did not get to see any of the Olympic Trials, and in fact we believe they have taken a break for a day or two.

Once we got my bike we hit the road south to Redmond, Oregon where the fly fishing outing will be hosted by members of the club. Susan planned the drive across the old McKenzie Highway as a beautiful sightseeing route and we were not disappointed. We even had some snow for our summer drive! Fortunately it was on the side of the road and not on the road.

Neither of us knew we would be driving through a lava field and viewing Belknap Crater. I would never be able to describe it, so will let some photos do it for me. Even then, it doesn't do it justice.

I believe this is Three Sisters mountain.

Lava field is huge. The last activity in Belknap Crater was 1800 (eighteen hundred!!!) years ago.

We walked to the top of the observation tower. Don't be too impressed -- there is an easy, winding paved trail from the parking lot to the top -- we did not scramble nor bolder hop...
