Sunriver, Oregon

We were in Sunriver, Oregon from June 30th - July 5th. Here are some shots of our stay.

 

Sunriver is a resort community located in the high desert of central Oregon. The sky is blue, the trees are tall, the air smells like pine, and it is hot. Sunriver is an outdoorsy, casual, active place with horses, river rafting, bike paths, swimming, tennis and golf (skiing in winter). We rent a condo on the edge of town where we can see horse pastures, the Deschutes River and Mt. Bachelor.

Below are pictures of the Deschutes River that winds through fields on the west side of town.



  

I loved this rustic fence with wire that surrounds the horse pasture.
 


The horse stables and pastures are right next to the river:

   

The house and path above are typical of Sunriver - there are no sidewalks. Houses are built into the trees with the forest as a yard.

 

Wildflowers and boulders:
 

We always stay at the Meadow House complex. The view on the right is from the front deck of our unit, right on the golf course.

 

The Village Mall of Sunriver has little shops and bike rentals.

 

Two more shots of the river and field next to it.

 

We had a restful, relaxing time. Jack especially enjoyed the trip. He got to see deer, horses, gophers and other dogs. He would sit on the deck and just sniff the air.
