Bend, Oregon, is a beautiful place year around, but here are some photos taken in the fall that are a little different that the usual mountain photos.
An hour’s walk from Pilot Butte is Mirror Pond in downtown Bend, seen here with a warm but mysterious glow.
Along the walk down from the butte we saw these ordinary fescues, sage, and I don’t know whats, but they looked fallish.
The complexity of the living stuff creates a visual blizzard.
Near the edge of Mirror Pond Debbie just had to throw some leaves.
Last night it snowed and now it is beautiful too, but in a very different way.
