Flying to Sunriver

We were supposed to be on vacation to Kalispell, MT this weekend but family health circumstances had us cancel that trip.  Chuck had been planning to spend the weekend with Beverly so that we could go on vacation but didn't feel like we could leave with what has been going on.  So we have decided to have more of a staycation and spend the weekend with him.

Today's expedition was a trip out to Sunriver to have lunch.  It was a great day to take some photos of the mountain peaks along the way.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed taking them.

We landed at Sunriver to find that there were a lot of firefighters there.  They were using the airport as a staging area for the firefighting efforts.  While we had seen a fire at Mt. Jefferson on the way there, the fire that they were supporting was in Chemult--further south relatively close to Crater Lake.  I was fascinated by all the helicopter activity going on there. 

After lunch at the Sunriver Lodge, we walked over to the shopping village and checked that out before heading home.  We enjoyed our excursion to the east side of the mountains for a little while today and then headed back to spend time with Beverly and take her some Thai food to give her a break from institutional food.  All in all a very nice day.
