|Pretty scenery along the way|
A couple days after the canoe trip we drove up Lava Butte. Quite a view from up there!

|That's the highway way down there|
|Mt. Bachelor and some of the Three Sisters|
After taking in the views at Lava Butte John suggested we go to Paulina Lake and drive up a dirt road to Pauline Peak, so we did. Not a drive for the faint of heart! The road was very washboard and there are no guard rails along the steep narrow road. ..however the view is fabulous!
|Paulina Lake on the left, East Lake on the right, see the lava flow just above the green shrubs on the right?|
Since John and Sissy left the only outings we’ve had were to LaPine to grocery shop and then Saturday we went back to LaPine to visit with our friends Steve and Elaine. We met them up in Randle, WA this summer and found out we’d be in the area about the same time. We had a nice visit and a yummy dinner at a restaurant in the campground they are staying at (Cascade Meadows). All-in-all a great visit to the Bend, OR area.
