June 6, Bend: Sunset at Anthony's

I took this sunset photo in beautiful Bend, Oregon, just outside of Anthony's fish restaurant the Deschutes River in the Old Mill District. Even in June, it was a bit cold for sitting outside tonight, although many were. I'd had a wild hare to get up and go, and I'd just finished the five-hour drive. I was pretty tired, mainly looking forward to a good dinner and a Margarita.

There was some kind of balloon event going on across the river, and hot-air balloons were being filled using gas fires. It looked pretty, and would have been inviting under other circumstances. I expect the balloons had been up during the day, and they were going to go flying again in the morning. It looks like Bend is right on the flight path between Portland and points south, which makes for something more to look at when the clouds are scarce.

Nice. Tht log, earlier on, I thought Crocodile or Alligator! Carp are good eating I believe, but are an introduced pest here because they eat the native species (inland rivers that is).
