We had a beautiful drive down Highway 97 into Bend, Oregon! The weather was sunny and warmish and traffic was light.
Right around the time we needed a bathroom break we came up to the Peter Skene Ogden Rest Stop. I have written before about how I went to Peter Skene Ogden Senior High so I always feel a tug to stop at this rest stop. The added bonus is the opportunity to view Crooked River from above, 300 feet above to be precise!
By noon we were set up at Scandia RV Park and after a quick lunch headed out the door to get some running around done. The only downfall to Bend is how pricey their RV Parks are! Scandia used to be one of the cheaper ones but is now just under $50.00 a night 😦 however we love Bend and the location is good so we figure it was worth the splurge.
We ended our day with a stop at a few of our favourite craft breweries and ended up walking out of most of them 😮 Bend was letting us down as most of the breweries had changed their taps and all of our favorites where gone … even our Pumpkin Spice Ale with the sugared rim at Silver Moon was gone, and that is honestly the main reason we come to Bend!
At least we picked up all the tax free items we wanted and as an added bonus we also filled up our 30 pound propane tank for just under $18.00 … we just filled one before we left home for $37.00! Really Canada there should not be that big of a difference!!!
Until next time …
