Our visit to Bend, ended with a drive to the beautiful Tumalo Falls.
This is just a short drive outside Bend, and it is the easiest of hikes! You literally drive RIGHT up to the waterfall, get out and walk up to the look out area. There is also a path that leads right to the top of the waterfall.
It was slightly rainy, and we’d read that there was a trail that leads behind the waterfalls, but it was pretty damp, muddy, and slippery… so we decided against it (maybe more fun in about 7 years ;))
We wished we could have stayed for at least a week, and really explored more of the area. Bend was absolutely beautiful and so different from Southern Oregon & the Portland area!
