Snowshoeing Pilot Butte

As I’ve mentioned before, this little hill in the middle of Bend is our free outdoor treadmill.  I’ve been going up and down it off and on for 35 years and I never get tired of the view.   My friend Nora and I had planned to play hooky for a couple hours today, and we were determined to go even if it was only 9 degrees.  We got 12″ of snow yesterday, so we were ready to be outside.

Nora and I, so happy to be out and about!  Cascade Mountains peeking out of the clouds behind us.

Nora went running up where the stairs usually are and struck this perfect pose.

This is the dial that tells where the mountains are all around – couldn’t see them all today.

The top area – usually packed with people.

Snowshoeing back down – look at the view! The snow was sparkling and we were ecstatic to be outside enjoying it.  This is why we live here!
