We FINALLY made it up to Bend to visit our good friends, Matt and Kate, and skied a couple days with them at Mount Bachelor. After skiing, we may have bit off a little more than we could chew. We decided to start a 4.5 mile hike at 4 PM, knowing that the sun would go down at around 4:30 PM. Let’s just say that it was pitch black by the time we got back to the car. We did get to see some nice colors in the sky right around dusk though.
Note to self … don’t hike in the snow in the winter when its about to get dark.
