Jeff and I took a little vacation to Bend, Oregon a few weeks ago. When I get to choose a vacation spot, I always want it to be warm and dry! The desert is my favorite place. It reminds me of our honeymoon. The long drive, the 100 degree heat, the views, the lack of other people, all reminded me of when we drove out to Salvation Mountain.
I didn't know anything about The Painted Hills until a few months ago. Once I found out about them, I knew I had to go the next time I was in Bend. They were about two hours from Bend, which was a long drive for a short visit but it was worth it. My photos don't do it justice!
