We live in a beautiful place! Central Oregon is an embarrassment of riches: alpine mountains and lakes, the Deschutes River going right through the center of town (plus, many other rivers nearby), Mt. Bachelor for fantastic skiing and snow-boarding, Smith Rock State Park for world-class rock climbing, volcanic buttes and caves to explore. The sports that are available to do on any given day include mountain biking, fishing, golfing, skiing, hiking, camping, climbing, spelunking – the list is endless.
However, I wonder what else is out there and I long for my children to see America. We live in an amazing country! Many people choose to travel outside the States and I am interested in doing that one day too. But…we live in an amazing country that I want to see before I die, and I want to expose my children to this vast, varied country – it will be an educational experience that they will never forget.
