Last week A and I decided to do one last hike before I left for California and D.C. We decided on Smith Rock State Park, about 35 minutes north of Bend. This place had been on our list for a long time so it was nice to finally be able to visit. We walked along the rim of the park for a bit and then did the Misery Trail, which is about a one mile trail uphill. Let me tell you, they don't call it the Misery Trail for nothing! Afterwards we were craving a burger and beer, so the obvious choice was to head to Bend. Although we didn't stay in Bend long, it was awesome to finally try some of the famous Bend beer. I can't wait to come back in the fall and do the Bend Ale Trail correctly.
