Hike and splash at Hand Lake Shelter :-)

A 2.6 mile hike off Mc Kenzie HWY 242 that leads you across alpine flower meadows, a lake , lava flows and a historic pioneer shelter . Too rustic for a tourist attraction, great for canine friends. WE will have a birthday party at The Kindred Spirit Doggie Ranch afterwards - celebrating the birthday of Cindy , who is the godmother and best friend of all my dogs . We will have an ice cream cake for humans, frozen peanut butter bones for dogs. You BYOB and bring hour d'heurs . Only 8 more spaces available ...hurry and rsvp :-) Let's carpool !

    Martina. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your dog. I understand we're initially meeting at the Tumalo Coffee House (for those of us coming from Bend) and then subsequently meeting in Sisters. No worries if this is right, but if it's not perhaps you could please let me know. Thanks for all that you doing in leading these events. I appreciate you.

    Oh Martina! I am so sorry at your news. I am amazed that you even want to do the hike.
    Are we still meeting in Sisters? at Melvins? I will give you a hug in person, when I see you.

    Hi Martina:
    I will have to give up my space to someone on the waiting list-very sad-because I really looked forward to this. I have agreed to help out take care a 12 mo puppy-cant be away from home for long periods-would I be able to join the group for the party? I will have Fanny and a 3yr. old springer Spaniel-look forward to hearing from you..

    The map link on this page shows us meeting south of Bend. This doesn't seem right. I will meet you in Tumalo at the coffee shop.

    I would love to make red pepper hummos if that appeals to anyone.

    This sounds like fun. Since I live west of Terrebonne, I'd like to meet in Sisters. Would Melvin's Mkt. work for everyone? It's on the corner of Fir St. & E Hood Ave. (the old Sisters PO building), has dog-friendly outside seating & good to-go sandwiches, etc.

    Lets all put the good spirits together and hope Martina and Kindred Spirit stay safe from those wicked fires near Tumalo. If I recall, her property is near Tumalo? Be safe, Martina and to everyone on westside Bend!
