A Burned Forest Offers Stellar Views

Mt. Wash

Denise and I drove over the Cascades on Sunday to see our nephew, who just graduated from high school in Bend.  It was a quick trip, but we stopped near Santiam Pass and walked around.   I hadn’t visited the area since a fire had come through in a recent summer. The views have opened up of Mount Washington to the south.  Too bad it was just a tease, but the high country is still snowy.  I can’t wait for the trails to open up.  This will be a great area to visit in another few weeks.

  1. Is that Mt Washington, nice!

  2. I have to tell you, I have come to love burn scars they are surprisingly lovely despite all the damage they cause. Hope you get back there soon!
