Bull Bend National Forest
If you're getting tired of beer and fish pics you may want to skip this blogpost. But then again, I caught a really nice German Brown despite getting caught in a severe thunderstorm in the kayak.
My Steve had been dying to go to the Deschutes Brewery and take the tour. The town of Bend is about a 1/2 hour drive from camp and that is where this as well as several other breweries are located. We go onto the last tour.
The corrugated outer skin on this tank is kept at an almost freezing temperature.
I love the way the hops look and smell.
Our guide taking us through the hops room. The smell was very strong in here.
The labeling/bottling room. This is always one of my favorites.
The mascot dog made from beer equipment.
I really enjoyed all the framed artwork they had of the beer labels.
For a dreary day the fishing really picked up! Look at my beautiful Brownie!
And my brother's big catch (heh heh, I told you I was going to post this!!)
It was great to see them once more before we head out.
Perry, Kristin, Ethan, Steve and I.
One last time out fishing on the kayak while it's nice and sunny!
It's nice to have your own personal lure-put-er-on-er with you. Thanks Bro!
Lot's of sun and snags but not many fish! Guess we need another storm. After the fish trip I went out to get a quick geocache. Sometimes it's a dangerous hobby. I got into a little fight with a bush and the bush won. Sharp, little bugger! No stitches, but I had a nice gash. I also had the last laugh as I broke that branch off after. That'll show it!
Hurley enjoying the kayak as always.
One last campfire.
After spending nearly 3 weeks going back and forth on the dusty roads we were looking forward to getting the trucks and rigs washed at Cascade Truck Wash. It cost us about $60 for washing the truck, trailer and even a free liquid wax.
Poor filthy Hoss!
All clean and shiny. Even got his boots polished!
Oh, those dirty tires and rims.
