3 things that make a great Open Image Vacation:
1) Climbing, amazing scenery, camping, great food and new friends.
2) Bend, Oregon. I visited Bend on a ski trip in 1999 and have always wanted to go back. I can now add it to my list of happy places as I have a rule you have to return to a place before you can officially name it a happy place. Skiing, climbing, mt biking, amazing coffee shops and 14 microbreweries , how could that not bring happiness. Thank you to Troy at Crow’s feet Commons for fixing my bike, hopefully we will see you in Squamish this summer!
3) Wrapped up the trip with a mountain bike ride near Mt Hood with the Cumberland Crew. Sorry no pics, was too busy riding. Next time
I had to throw in that last shot, if you have seen the show Portlandia you will know what I am talking about…lol
A big thanks to Jamie from Alaska for belaying so I could take photos!
