This day I decided to let Chris and Dave go to Bachelor by themselves.  Dave was trying to get as much riding in before he left as possible.  I was staying a couple extra days and knew I didn't have to push it.  Plus, I wanted to walk around Bend some more. 

Above you see the Deschutes brewery which is undergoing renovation.  Looks like they were receiving some malt when I took this picture.


Mirror Pond in downtown Bend.


For the beer nerds, click HERE for a panorama shot of the beer selection available at Safeway, a grocery store.  It dwarfs the selection at some of our liquor stores.


Speaking of beer, as I am want to do, another reason to spend the day in Bend was to eat lunch at Bend Brewing Company.  Above you see most of my beer sampler platter.  For food I had a Blackened Blue Marlin Caesar salad. 


This is the view of Mirror Bond that one sees from the back area of Bend Brewing Company.  It's a nice location for a brewpub.

Whilte I was walking around Bend in the sunshine, there was a blizzard on Mt. Bachelor, where Chris and Dave were doing battle with the elements.

HERE is a look at the blizzard.  1.23 MB  (video by Dave)

HERE is Chris riding and then tumbling in the powder.  1.49 MB  (video by Dave)

This is a great shot (by Dave) of Chris after the tumble in the video.
