I was over at my family’s place at Black Butte Ranch this weekend, and Central Oregon is in its full glory right now.  The birch (aspen?) trees are that truly amazing shade of yellow, and the vine maples are anywhere from bright yellow through orange to deep crimson.  Set against the dark pines, the colors are really remarkable.  No snow on the passes still, so this is a great time of year to head that way.

If you’ve never been out to Black Butte, it’s also well worth the trip.  Good restaraunt, beautiful views, miles of bike paths, tennis, golf, swimming etc.  A great place for family vacations, since there’s a little something for everyone.
