It's officially spring.... right? The truth is, if you come to Bend right now you might find yourself a little confused about what season it actually is. You see evidence of spring like tulips popping up on the side of the road and maybe even a few folks wearing sandals... but take a quick drive to Mt. Bachelor and you'll find skiers enjoying the fresh snow! So how are you supposed to know what activities are available? And how are you supposed to prepare for a vacation with so many variables?! We're here to help. We've just added a page to our website for the ever-confusing shoulder seasons: Spring and Fall.
With average highs in the high 50s and the lows are in the low 30s, every day is different from the one before. You could find yourself in a rain jacket and searching for sunglasses on the same day. Though that may feel confusing, it's also really exciting. For example, we launched our kayaks in the Deschutes River earlier this week and had a spectacular Moonlight Snowshoe Tour last night. As I write this today, the skies are grey and the rain is coming down. If what they say is true about April showers, we can expect some pretty amazing May flowers!! So to get you inspired and excited for spring, enjoy these pictures from last May. And check out that Spring/Fall Tours page to find out what kind of activities you can do in Bend this week! We'll see you out there! Wherever "there" is for you: the trails, the slopes, the river, or the breweries.
