    The High Desert Museum offers an array of historical and natural exhibits ranging from a way of life handed down through the memories of collectors of this great Nation. From the Native American Indian's legendary journeys of today's progressive evolutions to the mesmerizing geological aerial photographs of Michael Collier, geologist, writer and pilot. Additional sites follow the adventures of some of the very first travelers to have pioneered the lands of America. Both inside and outside exhibits portray a science of explanations offering knowledge with a perspective which can only be depicted by the individual creators themselves. We found this museum educational as well as entertaining. Highly recommended.

    For information on these exhibits and more, you may access the website below.

    The Sisters area near Sunriver has numerous hiking trails through lush forests and with stunning views. While we didn't make it to the top of this peak (that sharp thingy on the top looked a bit daunting) (Mt. Washington - thank you mtncorg!), we did make it to the top of another peak across the valley giving us incredible views.

    The Sisters are three dormant volcanoes, North, Middle and South Sister, in the Cascades with fantastic hiking.

    This moutain is one of the Sisters. The clouds on this day gave it the illusion of erupting.

    Sunriver has 33 miles of paved bike trails inside the Sunriver Resort area. The bike trails are masterfully laid out. They are safe, out of the car traffic, and the signage and directions are excellent. When you do have to cross the road, the bike lanes are well marked. and the car drivers generally yield.

    Because Sunriver is relatively flat, the bike trails are good for all ages. The bike trails lead to every activity in the resort.

    For those who like trails that are a bit more demanding, head outside the resort towards Mt. Bachelor. There are numerous mountain bike trails in the forests, mostly intermediate or expert.

    Honored by Golf Digest as one of "America's 100 Greatest Courses," 1999-2000, Crosswater was designed by award-winning architect Bob Cupp.

    Situated on 600 magnificently scenic acres of woodlands and carefully preserved wetlands, Crosswater is threaded by the gently flowing Deschutes and Little Deschutes Rivers. In fact, depending on tee selection the rivers can come into play as often as seven times in a round. The design is traditional heathland style, and the golf course features five tee placements for each hole as well as bent grass fairways and greens.
    You´ll have to get a pass from the lodge you are stying in to play, however.

    Favorite thing: Renting a house in Sunriver is key. All houses are very nice, and have hot tubs, of course. I recommend renting a house with your family or friends.

    Fondest memory: Winter formals. Drinking beer in the hot tub!
