Sunriver ’Scape 2005

April 15-19, 2005

For those of you who pooh-poohed the idea that there would be snow at Bachelor in mid-April—you missed some great skiing/snow-shoeing! According to the local ski experts, the snow was the best they’ve had all season!

This was a multi-sport weekend. We hiked Paulina Creek, Smith Rocks, and along the Deschutes (Benham and Dillon Falls area), and we skied and snow-shoed at Mt. Bachelor/Todd Lake. The highlight at Smith Rock was seeing a golden eagle and later, seeing and hearing two Canada geese who thought they were eagles—they sat up in the cliffs and made a terrible fuss. It was also quite interesting watching the large number of climbers scale the cliffs.

In the evenings, we played a very fun game called “Taboo” and then another night, Stewart demonstrated his prowess at Trivia Pursuit—he knew 80% of the answers and the rest of us combined knew 20%. Just sitting around reading or in the hot tub was very relaxing. And of course, eating was always a highlight—Anne’s tiramisu was scrumptious!

Thanks to all for a great long weekend at the first annual Obsidian Sunriver Escape: Anne Bonine, Kathy and Stewart Hoeg, Richard Hughes, Bob Huntley, Jack O’Donnell, Leila Snow, Nancy Whitfield, and coordinator Lana Lindstrom.
