Saturday, July 18, Oregon High Desert and Lava
We drove a few miles south of Bend and visited the High Desert Museum and several park locations in the Newberry National Volcanic Monument (Paulina Peak, Big Obsidian Flow, Lava Lands Butte, and Paulina Falls). The drives and walks brought back some ancient memories, as visiting some of them was an early trip together. Thank you Oregon, for making the trails and paths easier to climb, and to the High Desert Museum for being created since we were here.
For dinner, we found a Peruvian restaurant where we started off by devourng the chips in a great cilantro, lime, cerro chile, olive oil and garlic sauce - and then went barely had room to finish two Peruvian specials.
Tomorrow, we're making a beeline for Seattle to prepare to connect with Peter in Vancouver on Monday if he's back from his trip.
