Headed down to Bend, Oregon for the long weekend. A day off of work totally calls for a road trip with friends to see friends who live in cool places!! Just half an hour from Smith Rocks, Bend is an awesome place to veg out and enjoy delicious breweries, or be active and attempt a multi-sport weekend.

We spent too long brunching on Saturday, and got to the ski resort (also only 30 min from town) around noon... little did we know lifts closed in just an hour and a half... oops! Sunday we started out early, which helped a little in beating the heat and gave us plenty of time to climb. Down in the canyon/valley, 80 degrees can feel like 100 degrees, especially when you're holding on to hot rocks.
