Volcanic Vacation

Last week, Sarah, Andie, and I were in central Oregon enjoying our summer vacation. I never get tired of looking at Cascade volcanoes, so I love visiting this part of the state where so many conical beauties seem to have popped up in every direction.

Here are a few photos of our trip.

Mount Bachelor, the skiable volcano.

Broken Top from Sparks Lake, an eroded and likely extinct volcano.

South Sister, a very much alive volcano, hiding behind some trees at sparks lake.

Three-fingered Jack, another gnarly extinct peak.

In addition to volcano viewing, we birded the forests and sampled beers at local breweries, sometimes simultaneously.

Sounds fun! We paddled Sparks Lake and Hosmer Lake last summer and loved it.
