This is my girl, Kristin. This weekend, she participated in the Cascade Lakes Relay, with a team of 11 other members.
The race began yesterday at Diamond Lake Junction, headed to Silver Lake, then went past Crane Prairie Reservoir and onto the Cascade Lakes Hwy. Runners (and walkers) will be completing the 216.6 mile race when they end up in Bend sometime today.
Kristin ran three legs of the race (one in the middle of the night) and ended up with 13 miles under belt. She and Scott have a wedding to attend in Redmond today, so I picked her up at Crane Prarie at 8:00 this morning. We stopped at South Twin Resort for breakfast and had a great time catching up with each other.
South Twin is a wonderful spot, and the food was great. So was our waitress. I told her that I was so worried about last week's fire to being so close to them. She said that she saw the smoke and her boss called in the fire. They helicopters arrived within 30 minutes and were eventually successful in putting out the fire within only a few days. Here is a link to a blog post that I did in 2013 on Twin Lakes and Crane Prairie Resorts. Here is a news report to last weekends fire.
It was a good morning. Cary and I are going to Bend to get Garrett from his cousins this afternoon, and then Kari and Casey are coming in the morning. I have to clean two bedrooms sometime today, but they are both boys and don't care too much about messy rooms. Thank goodness!
I hope that you are all having a great weekend. I promise to make a return visit as soon as I can. I miss you all.
