I write about Central Oregon and Bend Oregon Real Estate. I know Bend, having lived in the city over 30 years. My blog goals are to pass on information pertinent to Bend Oregon Real Estate and the real estate profession in general.
The Obsidian Trail is Available Only by Paid PermitWe had heard about the Obsidian Trail for years, and how hard it is to reserve a time to hike it. Located in the Willamette National Forest off Hwy 242 (McKenzie Pass), access to the Obsidian Trail is limited - first due to Hwy 242's annual closu...

Last Saturday, August 29th, we decided to take an easier hike to Sisters Mirror Lake.  Located just south of Devil's Lake off South Century Drive, the Sisters Mirror Lake trail head has limited parking space, but we easily found a spot on the highway.  The 3 plus mile hike into Sisters Mirror Lak...

The hike starts at Three Creeks Lake located off Forest Road 16 (Elm Street in Sisters turns into this as you drive out of the cit...
Buyers Need a Great Agent to Work WithAsk any real estate agent right now how the market is, and the answer will be "crazy." In this time of the Covid-19 pandemic, home buyers are flocking to rural and suburban areas and buying homes faster than they can be listed.  This is resulting in a severe ...
We have lived in Central Oregon since 1985, but during this entire time we have never hiked to Camp Lake.  The start of this hike is located just outside Sisters off McKenzie Hwy on Forest Road 15 at the Pole Creek Trailhead. The hike into Camp Lake covers 7.1 miles (14.2 miles round trip), the f...
