Lucky shot of a heron
Probably the best photograph I've ever taken. Pure luck. I was watching this Great Blue Heron as it was standing in the grass, and then just started clicking as it took off.

Day 5 - Nice cold morning. Got a good start but got a flat in the most perfect place to change a flat. Wide paved pull off with a very scenic view. 

Highway 58 to Chemult then all 97. Much farther than I had intended. Mostly flat or downhill.

Day 4. Navigate Bend then 97, then Sunriver. Finally getting somewhere when I got to the fork in the road. One way to La Pine, the other to Cascade Lakes Scenic Highway. I took the fork. So delightfully cook up in the mountain lakes.
