One place we have not explored yet, is the Cascade Lakes region south of Bend. The area is near the ski resort of Mt. Bachelor and the glacial lakes are scattered amongst the deep woods and Sisters peaks. Gus and I decided to use my last day of “funemployment” by exploring a few of the lakes that lie off of Cascade Lakes scenic byway.
I was surprised at how close Bachelor is to our house. Door to door I clocked it at 35 minutes! I am already looking forward to ski season for sure. Gus first swam in Devils Lake, a shallow moraine colored lake that was surprisingly cold! Then he got to warm up in Elk Lake, and finally Sparks Lake! All within 10 minutes of each other. Gus is such a water dog that he probably thinks the Cascade Lakes region is heaven.
Next time we will explore a few more lakes and bring Jenee too!
