My Father’s Day in Central Oregon Was Awesome [PHOTOS]

I had a quite memorable Father's Day road tripping to Bend, OR, and learning some cool stuff about Central Oregon. Rather than tell you all the cool stuff I learned, I'm just going to have you read it yourself so that I can, you know, run a radio show over here.  In a nutshell, the town was decked out over the weekend with American Flags for Flag Day and a bunch of Oregon State University banners waving across the foot bridge in the Old Mill District as there was Beaver graduation going on. Serious. Think we live in high desert here? Take a trip to Bend, winter or summer, and you'll have more of an appreciation of the supreme natural beauty we have here living all over the Great Northwest!
