Lava Lands and Benham Falls

Friday we parked at the trailhead to Benham Falls on the north end of Sunriver and biked the 3 miles to Benham Falls. It was a great family trail with lots of families biking and walking along the way.

I’d love to say it was an amazing trip, and I did love it, but the boys were sure ornery today. 😳Had it just been Ryan and I it would have been 10x better.

When Joey is in the mood to complain their is no stopping that kid! 😫 All part of the fun on vacation! 

After we finished our bike ride we drive 5 miles south to Lava Lands Visitor Center and hiked up to the top. It was a simple half mile hike, but you’d think we hiked the South Sister with all the whining!  So fun!😳


The view from lava lands towards the West shows Mt Bachelor, Three Sisters and Broken Top.




The boys complained the entire hike up this baby hill… 🙄


A partial cloudy day but still beautiful! It’s perfect mid 70’s.


I run in this long haired hippie every where I go… creeper! 👀




Deschutes River at Benham Falls.

Over all it was a great day, we will forget the grouchy behavior of the boys and just remember the beautiful river and mountains along our biking and hiking.

Now it’s time for a cold beer…. Ryan is drinking a Crux IPA Called Gimme Mo.50CD8E9E-B19F-4B05-92A9-9777128A7246

Happy Saturday everyone! Enjoy your day!

    • Thank you… overall it’s all fun… ya just have to laugh at all the whining. Lol 😂 I know before long they won’t even go hiking with us, so I guess I’ll take a bit of whining. 💗
