36 hours in Bend, Oregon

Bend stopped being a secret some years ago; if I remember correctly, the population has gone from about 50,000 to 63,000 during the past 5-6 years alone. Bend is one of my favorite places anywhere, much less Oregon. It was also the catalyst behind my decision to move from Virginia to Oregon in the first place.

The New York Times mentions some of the best about Bend — Drake Park, Deschutes Brewery, the Three Sisters — and a lot more:

If you’ve never been there and want to go, drop me a line. At the least I’ll be happy to give some tips and suggestions. Though if you’d like some company, I’m always up for a trip to the dry side of the Cascades, especially this time of year.
