Sparks Lake Central OregonSparks Lake is a Central Oregon Treasure

After a summer  of forest fires which blanketed the sky and impacted Central Oregon with weeks of choking smoke, this last week we have been blessed with rain, early snow and, at last, smoke free skies.

Today we traveled a short distance from Bend up Cascade Lakes Highway to Sparks Lake, one of the most beautiful of the High Cascade Lakes and favored of renowned photographer Ray Atkeson.  The day was stunningly beautiful and the photo opportunities endless. This is one of many reasons why we love Bend, Oregon!

The Sunday issue of The Bulletin, Bend's local newspaper, contained an article on the 2017 Oregon fire season. According to the article, we are on track to at least equal the amount of acres burned in 2015 when over 600,000 acres of Oregon land caught fire. Through last Tuesday, August 29, 58 fires have burned close to 460,000 acres throughout the state.
