We found the Village Green Park in the middle of downtown Sisters to be a very welcomed spot to take a break during our walking tour of this quaint little town. We were glad to find that the park had clean public restrooms, which are always appreciated. It is also a good spot to just relax and do a little people watching. This would also be a good place for a picnic, or to let children blow off a little steam.

On our first day in Sisters we spotted Bronco Billy's Ranch Grill & Saloon, and were attracted because it looked like something out of an old western movie. Sure enough, we learned that the building is the historic old Hotel Sisters. This place is worth seeing even if you don't eat here. The rustic decor makes it almost like walking into a museum....more
The Gallery Restaurant which was just a short walk from our motel on Cascade Avenue, is a family style restaurant which we found to be an excellent choice for a hearty breakfast in Sisters. Our table was a booth in front of a plate glass window that looked out onto the main street of town.The Gallery has been a favorite dining spot for both locals...more

Although Karen and I are not big on shopping, we enjoyed browsing in the numerous upscale boutiques and galleries along Cascade Avenue in Sisters. Many artists of various kinds have been drawn to this quaint little town and it has become a favorite destination for those who are looking for unique items to decorate their homes or offices.
This photograph is of a sculpture in front of the Barclay Gallery which I found particularly interesting. The only thing we bought home with us from Sisters was a "Sisters" sweatshirt for Karen's sister, Joni.
You will seldom see a body of water anywhere any prettier than Clear Lake The transparent water of the lake reflects the blue of the sky and mirrors the surrounding forest of dark green conifers. Motorized boats are not allowed on the lake and I felt the man resting here beside his canoe made for a particularly idyllic scene.The lake is fed by snow...more
Less than a half mile south of the Sahalie Falls is the equally beautiful Koosah Falls This 80-foot waterfall splits into two or three segments, depending on the water level. The name "Koosah" is Chinook for "sky." Perhaps that is because the deep pool of water below the falls reflects the blue of the heavens above.Koosah Falls has its own parking...more
Travel brochures say the best time to visit Sahalie Falls is during the snowmelt of Spring. We were there in August, and I can't imagine the falls being more spectacular - or more lovely.This thundering falls plunges more than 100 feet over a lava cliff to form a glorious display. On the day of our visit there was even a rainbow in the mist. The...more
The long days and relatively cool temperatures of summer, as experienced here in central Oregon, is ideal for growing flowers. We enjoyed the many plantings we saw throughout the town of Sisters in late August. Karen took this photograph of a sunflower growing in a large planter on Cascade Avenue. Since our daughter-in-law, Erin, has a particularly...more
Sisters, Oregon takes its name from The Three Sisters, triplet volcanic peaks of the Cascade Mountain Range which can be seen from the town. You may have to enlarge this photo to see the third sister, "peaking" from behind the sister to the right. They are individually named South Sister, Middle Sister and North Sister. From the right vantage...more
