We decided to take a quick weekend trek to Bend, OR to escape the grey of home and for some skiing and lounging about. Mother Nature had a very different plan and bombarded the region with a winter storm. We drove away from the storm and did a day hike at Smith Rock (one of my favorite places), and we definitely did plenty of lounging. Thank you to the Olympics for the added entertainment. We still got to ski the morning we flew back to Seattle.
