Aspen Meadow (Bend, Oregon)

Probably the least photogenic time of year for these aspens, but this was a lovely place. We started our walk near Dillon Falls and turned around near the “Aspen Day Use Area”.

Alder Springs Trail (near Bend, Oregon)

Alder Springs Trail

I thought this stream was called Alder Springs Creek, given the name of the trail, but I think it’s actually called Whychus Creek. This is a very nice hike, especially on a day less than 95 degrees (which was the temperature on the day we did it), but it’s a pain to get to as the road is not good, and Google maps will lead you astray.
