Blue River/Rainbow, Oregon:

I wanted to share some highlights of last weekend's trip to the McKenzie Valley. (These pictures were taken with my Christmas camera, and I love it! I have so much to learn though. This was the first time that I have used it.)

We stayed at Holiday Farms Resort. They have all of these cute little vacation rental cabins, and a restaurant/lounge that it right across the street. The cabins are managed by two separate companies: The Holiday Farm Resort and McKenzie Riverside Cottages. If one company says they are full, call the other one. The cabins are individually owned, so they vary in decor. Some are right on the river, with decks overlooking the water. Winter rates vary from $158.00 to $175.00 per night, but you are getting your own house for that amount.

The Holiday Farms restaurant and lounge.

We stayed in Riversong this time. It is one of our favorites, as are Honeymoon and Lookout. Water Wheel is also very nice. Shady Rest does not have a deck right on the river, but it is a really nice little house with a great views. Some of the cabins:

Jerry and Linda from Bend invited us over for dinner on Monday night. We really enjoyed ourselves. Thanks again, you two!

Linda is holding an inspiring snake
that I might copy someday.



Jan brought some souvenirs of last
years' trip to share with us.

Some pretty pictures of the scenery (I posted a bunch more this mornng under the McKenzie River link on the right):

My favorite photography subject (he's always handy and never objects ... plus, he's easy on the eye):
