    I’m attracted to any place with a large body of water. Or just liquids in general. Lol.

    No pic, just a memory.

    Sloughing a trail, backpacking in the eastern Sierras, hot afternoon moving through granite plains scraped clean by glacier ice. Probably 9-10k altitude and the sun is close enough to reach out and touch.

    We came upon a spring fed pool in a crack in the granite. It was large enough so all four of us could get out of the sun, fill our bottles and relax against the cool rock. Never been back, not on USGS quad sheet.

    I recall this spot when they put the blood pressure cuff on me

    If you want relative tranquility, I recommend going after Labor Day if possible. The weather is generally cooler but still very nice and most of the visitors are gone. But honestly you can’t go wrong any time. The deluxe cabins have all the comforts of home including heat & A/C. No pets, no smoking. Cabin #2 has ideal shade for sitting outside in warm weather. Outdoor BBQ with propane provided. If you have a boat you can rent a mooring very close to the cabins at the marina.

    Madras is about 30 mins drive. Bend is about an hour (Deschutes Brewery!!!). Smith Rock nearby. Kha-nee-ta Warm Springs, Erickson aviation museum. Lots to see. Drive to Prineville and see if you can find the huge Apple and Facebook data centers.

    Seriously, I love it there when the weather is at least warmish. That whole high desert farm ranch vibe appeals to me even if I’m a city boy.
