When you’re navigating the Cascades in the snow, if you’re someone who skis the trees rather than the groomers, especially at Mt. Bachelor, you’re probably pow slashing through mountain hemlock. Named after German botanist, Franz Karl Mertens, these bluish-green conifers prefer cold, high elevation, snowy, subalpine environments. Here they mature very slowly, often attaining 800 years in age, though the oldest is rumored to be 1400 years old. During summer months they display a springy trunk and branches with a signature droopy leader up top and cones three to four times larger than its western counterpart (Tsuga heterophylla). In winter, mountain hemlock is accustomed to snow cover. It responds by forming beautiful archways that resemble the hook of a candy cane and even visibly retains its droopy top trademark identifier. With layered episodes of storm cycle ice, naturally flocked, white mountain hemlock shapes transform and en masse, with some imagination, form a giant frozen coral reef with imbricated wind direction. This is most spectacular when viewed overhead from the lift. When winter wanes and the snow melts, the mountain hemlock’s springy bows perk back up and re-capture their expected shape for downhill mountain bike season.

PRAY FOR SNOW
During the fall season, Central Oregon powder hounds start to get antsy and hopeful predictions about winter snowpack start flying. Whether on the Mt. Bachelor Conditions Facebook forum, in the letters to the editor, or just at your local watering hole, everyone is praying for snow. Conversations comparing La Niña predictions from the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration abound, recounting massive snowpacks from seasons of yore and speculations about the promise of warmer Octobers leading to early snow in the forecast. Coincidence or firm fact, each snow enthusiast has their own concocted formula for assessing the forthcoming season’s potential for snow. Bend’s collective bloodlust for precipitation manifests in events dubbed “pray for snow” parties put on by Mt. Bachelor, 10 Barrel Brewery and many other local businesses. The Gear Fix, a popular secondhand boutique sports equipment closet, even announced a snow dance contest this year. To be relevant, use this phrase and use it often. Don’t get left out in the cold. Start preparing your argument now for why it will snow a heap this winter and talk about it incessantly.

“My goal is to create a homebuying experience that ensures you are comfortable, happy and hopeful the moment you decide to move to Bend.”
Scattered about the urban landscape like oasis islands of micro-brewed beers and assortments of top-notch chef creations, food cart pods are all the rage in Bend. Fashioned around a central, permanent tap house, a food pod is also a mother ship for hosting several unique and independently themed food trucks. The main tap space is often built of rustic wood and resembles an enormous homey, built-out patio bar with picnic tables. Some are fully enclosed, or have open walls covered in the winter with two- or three-walled with canvas or plastic, while others have heated concrete seating or open fires. They often serve a variety of bevvies like wine, cider, kombucha and nitro coffee, and host local bands or other entertaining activities like open mic and trivia. Food trucks are typically entrepreneurial endeavors for talented owner/operator chefs. Locals like to support the entrepreneurial efforts of these chefs by dining for less and getting the highest quality meal. North, south, east or west — if you travel in any high desert direction, you’ll eventually happen upon a food pod — Bend’s modern method for circling the chuck wagons after an adventure in the mountains.

Have you ever walked on the moon? In the mid-1960s Apollo 11 astronauts, including Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, came to Central Oregon to practice doing just that before their 1969 moon landing. Not knowing what to expect of the moon’s surface, they came to Oregon to train on the lava fields that are made of basalt. So, what’s the origin of Oregon’s flood basalt high lands? 19 million years of thinning in the continental crust and upwelling of dense, mafic liquid rock from the mantle. The basalt that underlies Bend and traces the path of the Deschutes River originates from vents associated with what was Newberry Volcano and is now the collapsed Newberry Caldera. The lava from Newberry has created many awe-inspiring outcrops and rock formations, networks of subsurface lava tubes, fields of sharp ‘a‘ā (pronounced “ah ah”), massive rock faces of pāhoehoe (pronounced “paw hoey hoey”) ropy lava, towering basalt columns also referred to as organ pipes, and frozen casts of volcanic necks. Perhaps most unique of all, Lava Cast Forest, a lava field entombing a forest engulfed by lava which hardened so quickly the lava holds molds of the ghost trees once present. Though lava lands can appear harsh and post-apocalyptic, for wildflowers, pikas (a small rodent-like mammal related to rabbits), astronauts training to land on the moon and a well-filtered watershed, basalt is a favorite substrate.

APR È S SKI
Embodying a throw-back to simpler times, après ski is a French term from the 1950s literally translating to “after ski.” It conjures images of pleasant outdoor beer gardens adjacent to groomers in the alps. Modern definitions say it marks the shift from leg-burning ski runs to one-too-many drinks with friends which you may have just met on the slopes that day. In Bend, it’s a concept for concert series, happy hours, events and a long-standing post-mountain discounted drink and a slice at Pizza Mondo in downtown Bend. At après ski it's appropriate to wear your relaxed ski attire from earlier in the day. The messier the hair the better. Hide it under a stocking hat or put it in a top knot. Think of it as a chance to show off the labels on your base layers as indoor après ski events get pretty steamy. For locals, shredding up the powder from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. is only half of the requisite commitment for being a true powder hound or ski bum. The other mandatory commitment is heading to post-mountain engagements. In Bend, rumor has it that River Pig, Washington Dining and Cocktails, Cascada at Juniper Preserve, Mount Bachelor’s Clearing Rock Bar and 10 Barrel Brewery offer some of the best options. Cheers!

The king of mutualism in the winter pine forests of Central Oregon, you’ll find this friendly bird near humans in the backcountry. When you’re snowshoeing, cross country skiing, sledding or in the parking lot at Mt. Bachelor, Clark’s nutcracker will be inquisitively flying by checking out the action. Named after Captain William Clark of the Lewis and Clark expedition, and originally thought to be a woodpecker based on bill stature, Clark’s nutcracker is in the jay and crow family and uses its bill to release seeds from tightly locked pinecones. In fact, the White Pine solely depends on this bird to deploy its seeds and procreate. Also called Clark’s crow or woodpecker crow, winter passersby are tempted to feed this gray and black feathered jay as they will perform antics and tricks, even landing on your hand for a meal. However, it’s best to follow Leave No Trace ethics and refrain from feeding the wildlife. Hiding pine nuts in the ground during the summer and retrieving them by memory in the winter, Clark’s nutcracker is adept and well fed without human treats.
I love Fall in Bend! There are so many places where you can just drive through town and see the leaves changing colors and the mountains.
Hola! Restaurant is my place! I love that I can always count on Marcos and his team to take care of my friends and me. And who doesn't love a Margarita?!
Favorite place to catch a sunset? Broken Top Country Club after a round of 18!
Favorite place to hike in Bend? Any course with 18 holes!
The hike to Salt Creek Falls is a personal favorite. If you do the entire hike, you can go behind the waterfall! It's always a treat.
Favorite place to splurge?
Saxon's Fine Jewelers of course! (wink) Because everyone needs a little sparkle in their lives!
Lucky you live in Central Oregon because…

LAY OF THE LAND
Thrill seekers can zip line off Mt Bachelor, crawl through underground lava caves, or rock climb at Smith Rock State Park. Those preferring to keep their feet on solid ground have hundreds of trails, parks, and nature preserves to choose from. Water lovers find plenty of river and lake access for floating, fishing, and swimming. If this all sounds too outdoorsy for you, no problem. Central Oregon is home to wineries and distilleries, luxury resort spas, community theaters, art fairs, and incredible museums like the High Desert Museum and the Deschutes Historical Museum. No matter what activity you choose, you’ll likely want to finish the day with a tasty drink, satisfying meal, and an unparalleled view of seven incredible mountains.
Before European exploration and the incorporation of the Oregon Territory and the establishment of Oregon as a state in 1859, eight Indigenous Nations—each with their own customs, movements, and traditions—first claimed this land. These include the Wascoes, Warm Springs, Northern Paiutes, and the Columbia River Tribes: Wasco (Chinookan), Tenino, Tygh, Wyam, and John Day (Sahaptin). This place, where high desert meets evergreen forests nestled in the rain shadow of the Cascade Mountain Range, has been hugely significant to humans for thousands of years. In fact, archeological evidence shows Indigenous peoples have been living in Central Oregon since at least 13,000 years ago.
When Euro-American’s began colonizing this area in earnest in the early 1800s, they forever changed the relationships between land, people and animals. Since then, Bend has morphed from a pre-colonial landscape to a single “Farewell Bend” Ranch to a robust logging town to a bustling outdoor adventure destination. With the arrival of two colleges (Oregon State University Cascades and Central Oregon Community College),
Bend continues to emerge as one of the most attractive places to live and visit—with unique intersections of culture, activity, and industry.
Whether it’s activity, food, or entertainment you’re after, Bend (aka Beer City, USA) offers it all. With a dreamy concoction of restaurants, outdoor activity, and art, it’s no wonder Bend has been one of the fastest growing towns in recent decades. With over 75 city parks, more than 20 breweries, and more food trucks than one can count, Bend is one of the most vibrant and progressive towns in Central Oregon. With cultural highlights like the High Desert Museum, headliner bands playing at Hayden Homes Amphitheater, performing arts at Tower Theatre and Cascades Theatrical Company, shopping at the Old Mill District, and a bustling downtown filled with boutique shops, restaurants, and style, Bend is home to myriad yearround events that means anytime is a great time to visit.
This sleepy town at the base of the Three Sisters Mountains entices visitors like a step back in time. Its 1880s, western-style buildings, wooden sidewalks, and tight-knit storefronts house local artists, the famed Sisters Coffee Co. and Sisters Bakery, and a noticeably friendly atmosphere. From this Gateway to the Cascades, take a short drive to Suttle Lake, or drive or cycle the 82-mile McKenzie Pass-Santiam Pass Scenic Byway through old-growth forests or the 37-mile Sisters to Smith Rock Scenic Bikeway through sagebrush and juniper canyons. Don’t miss the annual Sister’s Rodeo (June), internationally recognized Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show (July), Annual Country Fair (September), and plenty of community races, music shows, street festivals and more throughout the year.

You really can tell a lot about a town by checking their events calendar. For Redmond, this includes an annual rodeo, brew festivals, BMX Nationals, summer concert series, art shows, and more than one car show on the books. No matter your interests, the “Hub of Central Oregon” offers something for everyone. Whether you’re here to golf, climb, hike, shop, relax, or all the above, Redmond is the place to be. With locally-owned shops, a vibrant yet historic downtown, parks, public art, and several outstanding breweries, wineries, and distilleries, Redmond ensures your dance cards are full. With the Redmond Caves to explore, walking tours, fishing guides, treasure hunting at antique shops, disc golfing, tennis and cycling at Dry Canyon Park, this small yet happening town is giving Bend a run for its money.
Not only is Terrebonne known as horse country, it’s also the location for the world-famous Smith Rock State Park. Located a short 6-mile distance north of Redmond, Terrebonne (“good earth”) exemplifies the outdoor lifestyle with its abundant opportunities for hiking, mountain climbing, horseback riding, fishing and even activities like bungee jumping, hot-air balloon
excursions and golf at Crooked River Ranch GC. After your outdoor adventures, visit some of Central Oregon’s best-known wineries or take a self-guided tour at a working alpaca petting farm.
If the bustle of Bend is too much and the open vistas of Redmond don’t entice, then consider Sunriver where the Deschutes River meanders through lowlands, houses are tucked between ponderosa pines, and the mountain views are breathtaking. Nearby exploration sites include Newberry National Volcanic Monument, the Lava Cast Forest, and the underground trail at Lava River Cave. Local resorts and shops offer year-round activities like horseback riding, bike rentals, crosscountry skiing, golfing, and events, making Sunriver cute and casual.
No matter where you find yourself in Central Oregon, you’re likely in the right place. That is to say, you can’t go wrong here. So, relax, enjoy 300 days of sunshine, smile whenever you glimpse so many astounding mountain peaks, and know that you’re welcome in Central Oregon anytime because this small-town feel has big-town dreams.
No matter where you find yourself in Central Oregon, you’re likely in the right place.
ART IN THE ROUND
Bend’s not just a mecca for outdoor recreation, it’s a world-class art gallery.
words MEGHAN ROBINS
At 42 roundabouts and counting, Bend has more traffic circles than any other city in the state of Oregon. Proudly, there’s not a single signal light west of the Deschutes River and over a dozen more roundabouts are slated to go in over the next 10 years.
When the first roundabout was constructed in 1999, residents were in an uproar. Chaos would ensue. Nobody would understand. How would anyone turn left? What happens if you miss your exit!? But the city was growing. Change was coming and developer Mike Hollern had recently been to Europe.
He’d seen how well traffic moved through roundabouts in European cities, so he proposed an alternate solution to the traffic signals or three-way stops city planners were proposing. His idea also saved some beautifully mature Ponderosa Pines from being cut down. Hollern owned property nearby and knew a roundabout would improve access to his property. So with permission from the city and Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT), his company Brooks Resources Corporation advocated for and funded Bend’s first roundabout.
And the city has never been the same. Within five years, a dozen more roundabouts were built and soon people began to wonder what do to with all the empty space in the middle. In 2001, the first roundabout art piece was installed at Mt. Washington and NW Crossing Drive called “Sunrise Spirit Column” by the late David Govedare. A few years later, “Redsides” by Miles Addison Pepper went in at Simpson and Colorado beside Deschutes Brewery. Today, the City of Bend doesn’t just offer beautiful mountains, rivers and forests, it’s an outdoor gallery of world-class proportions.
The art is largely funded by Art in Public Places (AiPP), a nonprofit started in 1973 “to provide free access to worldclass art and to create an impactful and art-centric way of navigating the city.” Bend Foundation, a nonprofit funded by Brooks Resources Corporation, and other community donations are also major contributors.
This approach to beautifying outdoor public spaces–including public parks, city benches and even sides of businesses–has attracted national attention. In 2005, Bend was acclaimed as having “among the most innovative approaches to public art in the country” by Americans for the Arts. In 2014, Brooks Resources Corporation was awarded the BCA 10: Best Business Partnering with the Arts in America award for their “exceptional commitment to the arts,” placing Bend on the map alongside national names like John Deere, Edward Jones and Hallmark.
As the City of Bend grows and more roundabouts are slated to be installed, Art in Public Places continues to put out calls to artists, specifically to professionals living in the western and southern United States. Almost every year, new installations are being chosen by committee with opportunity for public comment. AiPP and city representatives narrow submissions to three options based on “level of artistic excellence, interactivity, innovative qualities, originality, durability, and ability to enhance a particular landscape or enliven a specific public space.” Then community members of all ages are invited to review and comment on digital renderings. The selected artists work with the city to construct and install their pieces. The resulting collection of artwork is owned by the City of Bend.
In 2011, Bend Visitor Center officially launched the Roundabout Art Tour that includes a self-guided map and prizes for anyone who answers enough trivia questions correctly (more info at visitbend.com). To get you started, here are a few roundabout highlights.
SUNRISE SPIRIT COLUMN
The very first roundabout artwork installed in 2001 is “Sunrise Spirit Column” by the late David Govedare, located at Mt. Washington Drive and NW Crossing Drive. Stacked rocks slightly askew combine natural elements of basalt, granite, copper and steel, some of which was donated onsite by Brooks Resource Corporation. The metal work on top suggests a sunrise with carved metal feathers dangling in the wind. If you look closely, modern-day pictographs of an airplane, TV, soaring eagle, skier and more decorate the columnar basalt. Govedare, who resided in Northeastern Washington, believed the location of his art is just as significant as the art itself, and more of his expansive collection of large-scale art pieces can be found throughout the Pacific Northwest.
A school of carved metallic fish shine in unison inside the roundabout at Colorado and Simpson Avenue thanks to the kinetic art installation created by Miles Addison Pepper. Installed in 2003, each fish displays crosshatched red sides made of steal and wire, representing the local Deschutes River’s rainbow trout colloquially known as “redsides.” A signature aspect of Pepper’s sculptures is the interactive display, or kinetic movement his pieces often include, and this school of “redsides” can be seen swimming in whatever direction the wind blows. A resident of Pullman, Washington, Pepper has been using his background in metal work, engineering and architecture to inspire movement within public art since 1995.
The "Centennial Logger" on SW Reed Market Road was created and installed in 2004 by the late Jerry Werner, a renowned Central Oregon sculptor whose bronze designs often started out in clay. As a commemoration of Bend’s 100-year anniversary as an incorporated town (voted on by the people in 1904), the “Centennial Logger” represents a time when Bend’s main industry was logging. The bronzed man stands with one boot on a stump, a single-blade ax over his shoulder, trim waste and protective hardhat. He faces west toward the town’s namesake river bend, Farewell Bend Park, and the Old Mill District shopping center where major timbering operations were located. His counterpart, the “Centennial Planter” also created by Jerry Werner in 2004, kneels in an adjacent roundabout, forever planting saplings to replenish the depletion that took place during more than 50 years of logging.
Sunrise Spirit Column Redsides
Sitting on its haunches and sniffing east, the bronze sculpture “Grizzly” lives on Franklin Ave and NE 8th Street. Created in 2001 by prolific Montana-based artist Sherry Sander who is known for capturing animals' unique features and gestures, “Grizzly” represents a time when large predators roamed Oregon freely. “Grizzly’s” location near Bend Senior High (Bend’s oldest high school opened in 1904) is also a subtle nod to their mascot the Lava Bear, a mythical creature first believed to be a unique species stunted by malnutrition due to their rough lava bed habitat but later revealed to be dwarf black bears found primarily in Central Oregon. They’ve since disappeared—the last one reportedly seen in the 1930s.
More than 500 golden leaves flutter in the wind, adorning five metallic trees in southwest Bend at the Murphy Road and 3rd Street roundabout. This twenty-five-foot-tall kinetic sculpture called “Gilded River” was designed, fabricated and installed by
Idaho-based artist team Ken McCall, Mark Baltes and Leslie Dixon in 2017. It’s a celebration of nature’s beauty and humans' relationship to it specifically in the Pacific Northwest. Each gilded leaf casts playful shadows across the street, cars and roundabout while also catching the sunlight and shadows that creates depth, texture and an interactive sculpted environment … all inside a traffic circle.
WILSON & 9TH ST. ROUNDABOUT
While there’s no centerpiece artwork yet, the roundabout at Wilson and NE 9th Street still deserves special recognition. Completed in 2022, Wilson and 9th is Oregon’s first bike-friendly roundabout with three separate lanes for vehicles, bicycles and pedestrians respectively. While cyclists entering roundabouts always maintain the right to enter traffic circles as a vehicle in the vehicle lane, they now also have the choice to ride in the bright green dedicated bike lane, separated from both pedestrians and cars. Regional artists should be on the lookout for a call-to-artists for this and many of Bend’s future roundabouts.
MOVING FORWARD … CIRCULARLY
Knowing that each intersection has unique challenges, the City of Bend has adopted a “roundabout first” mentality because the safety benefits are clear: Roundabouts ensure less vehicles idling, reduces pollution, creates more continuous movement, and results in fewer head-on collisions and fewer accidents in general. The natural trafficslowing nature of roundabouts means that no matter what, drivers need to slow down to enter a traffic circle (versus speeding up to sneak through that shifting yellow light). You’ll also never see cars needlessly waiting to enter a roundabout when no other cars are at the intersection, reducing driver frustration and the running of red lights. First time roundabout drivers and cyclists have a lot to learn, however. Driving and cycling through roundabouts can feel a bit disorientating, especially in Bend where arterial roads curve with the Deschutes River, neighborhood grids subtly shift into spirals, and there are at least a few roundabouts between you and wherever you’re going. Luckily, there’s world-class art to calm you in these traffic calming circles. If you’ve been in Bend for a couple of days, or even hours, you’re most likely well on your way to earning the Roundabout Art Tour prize.
TIPS FOR SAFE ROUNDABOUT TRAVEL
• Your turn to enter is only when a safe gap appears in traffic.
• Already in the roundabout? Congrats, you have the right of way.
• Once you’re in the roundabout, do not stop to let anyone in.
• Yield to pedestrians and never block crosswalks.
• Never change lanes or pass within a roundabout; get in the correct lane before entering.
• Always exit based on your lane.
• Always use your blinker or right hand to signal when you’re exiting (It’s Oregon law).
• The apron (raised inner circle) is for semi-trucks and emergency vehicles only.
• Cyclists are considered vehicles when in a roundabout; they have the same rights and responsibilities as vehicles.
• The speed limit is 15 to 20 mph.
• Glance at the artwork but keep traffic moving! (For safety’s sake, don’t try to approach artwork on foot.)
• Like at all intersections, slow down, be aware and practice defensive driving.
Wilson & 9th Street
A 20-year-old nature preserve provides a great winter playground for self-guided cross-country skiing and snowshoeing
images JAY MATHER
words MEGHAN ROBINS
Winter is an especially magical time to ski or snowshoe in Central Oregon where undulating landscapes reveal glimpses of the Cascade Mountains and peaceful meanderings take you through coniferous forests. One particular favorite winter retreat is the 1,240-acre Metolius Preserve, located 10 miles northwest of Sisters near Camp Sherman, an hour drive north of Bend.
Not to be confused with the Metolius River Preserve (a 30-acre preserve located roughly 10 miles farther north and not generally open to the public), the Metolius Preserve is open yearround during daylight hours and offers abundant opportunities for year-round recreation including hiking and biking in summer and over 10 miles of snowshoeing and cross-country ski trails in the winter.
Beneath towering ponderosa pines, you’ll smell that wintery aroma of Douglas firs and wonder about
the uniquely deciduous conifer, the western larch. In fall, soft green western larch needles turn yellow then fall, covering the ground in a bright golden carpet. The trunks and branches grow narrow and self-limb to spend winters not dead but dormant. These fire-resistant ancestors can be up to 900 years old and are known for their straight-grained quality softwood, medicinal sap, healing bark gum and a variety of other properties.
Three branches of Lake Creek run through the Metolius Preserve, flowing out of Suttle Lake as one before splitting into three (North, Middle and South Forks) and converging into the Metolius River. The Metolius River, a nearby and unique feature of this landscape, begins just north of Black Butte as a cool mountain spring bubbling straight out of the ground, forming a full-fledged river. The Metolius River then flows 29 miles, fed by many smaller tributaries, to its endpoint at Lake Billy Chinook.
Together these rivers create a complex watershed providing critical, and now protected, habitat for hundreds of species of fish, large and small mammals, reptiles, insects and plant species. Thanks to the committed efforts by the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs and Portland General Electric, native fish populations are being reintroduced by way of Lake Creek and the Metolius River back into the upper Deschutes Basin. Every year redband trout spawn in Lake Creek, spring Chinook salmon thrive in these waters, and sockeye salmon migrate upriver to Suttle Lake. Additionally, over 80 species of birds are known to live or migrate through the Metolius Preserve. Deschutes Land Trust is always looking for community volunteers to help with bird surveys, population monitoring and field notes to better understand the impacts their restoration projects are having (visit DeschutesLandTrust.org for more details).
Deschutes Land Trust is a nonprofit whose mission is “to conserve and care for the lands and waters that sustain Central Oregon, so local communities and the natural world can flourish together for generations to come.” They purchased the 1,240-acre Metolius Preserve in 2003 with the goal of shifting the property’s ecological fate and preserving nature for plants, animals and human enjoyment.
For thousands of years, the area now called Central Oregon has been the traditional lands of the Wasco
(Wasq’u) and Warm Springs (Tana’ma) peoples, with crossover from many neighboring nations, including the Wasco (Chinookan), Klamath, Molalla, Tenino, Tygh, Wyam, John Day (Sahaptin) and Northern Paiute (Numu) peoples who travel into the area for trade, harvesting seasons and when following game. Today, members of the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs maintain their rights to fish, hunt and harvest at traditional locations like Metolius Preserve, and Deschutes Land Trust considers them critical partners in the continual management and restoration of nature preserves throughout Central Oregon.
Archeologists have found evidence of Indigenous Peoples living in Central Oregon since at least 13,000 years ago. Thousands of years later in the early 1800s, Euro-American trappers, missionaries, gold-seekers and government-funded cartographers traveled through and settled in Indigenous Nations’ territories throughout the American West.
As the U.S. Army-led Pacific Railroad Survey team searched for possible Transcontinental Railroad connector routes, the Oregon Territory superintendent negotiated with members of the Wasco and Warm Springs Nations to cede nearly ten million acres to the United States government under the Treaty of 1855. In return, they were allotted 640,000 acres on what is now called the Warm Springs Reservation.
Deschutes Land Trust relies on community volunteers, donors and professional experts to manage and protect this beautiful section of forest.
Before the treaty ink was dry, free land was offered by the U.S. government to any white person willing to work it. Between the 1830s and 1870s nearly half a million squatters descended upon Wasco and Warm Springs territories via the Oregon Trail. Then in 1879, thirty-eight members of the Paiute nation who fought against the U.S. Army alongside the Bannock People were forced off the Yakama Reservation and moved to the Warm Springs Reservation. Eventually, the Paiute people became a permanent addition. Today, these three nations—the Wasco, Warm Springs and Paiute Nations—each with their diverse languages, customs, histories and traditions, are collectively known as the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs.
By the 1860s, many Euro-American immigrants were building homesteads in Central Oregon and in 1865 the completion of the Santiam Wagon Road established frequent traffic flow of goldseekers, capitalists, ranchers and homesteaders between the Willamette Valley and Central Oregon. Landownership records of the acres comprising Metolius Preserve include big names like BrooksScanlon, one of Bend’s earliest and largest timber companies, who owned the property from 1920 to 1978. In 1978, they sold it to Diamond International Corporation, later purchased by Cavenham Forest Industries in 1980, who sold it to Crown Pacific in 1988, who sold it to Willamette Industries, who was
forcibly taken over by Weyerhaeuser in 2002.
Just as Weyerhaeuser’s heated acquisition of Willamette Industries was taking place, Deschutes Land Trust, with impressive community support, raised the needed 2.6 million dollars to purchase the land and establish the Metolius Preserve. Today, Deschutes Land Trust relies on community volunteers, donors and professional experts to manage and protect this beautiful section of forest.
Every year, various forest and stream restoration projects are completed, and invasive weeds must be continually managed. According to their website “If [weeds] are not actively managed, they compromise healthy native plant communities.”
It’s a subtle nod to a time before landownership and business acquisitions when people lived with the land; maintained areas through generational ecological knowledge; and managed meadows, rivers and forests for thousands of years with human connection.
Today, you can experience this place too. Come to Metolius Preserve or any of Deschutes Land Trust’s properties that are open to the public (during daylight hours only). Check for weather conditions, parking directions and property rules including if dogs are allowed. Come stand under towering pines, learn about the trees and ancestors of this place, and enjoy a slice of natural preservation.

SLOPESIDE A slopeside maker’s workshop for building customized skis and snowboards
Have you ever dreamed of building
your own skis or snowboard tailored to the conditions on your favorite ski hill, your body type or skill level? Or maybe want to try out a funky design or fresh graphic? The opportunity to customize and build personal snow hard goods completely from scratch has arrived to Central Oregon.
With a reputation for attracting and welcoming all those with a shared love to recreate in the snow, it’s no wonder Hoodoo Ski Area is also the headquarters and birthplace of Santiam Snolab. Named for the indigenous people who originally inhabited the Northern Plateau region, the makers’ workspace was erected for designing, creating and then shredding a custom set of skis or a snowboard tailored to an individual’s needs and their unique specifications.
Hoodoo General Manager, Matthew McFarland, made skis in an informal ski factory in his garage for years before the idea of Snolab came to him. The ski-centric makers workshop crystallized after McFarland met someone that had fabricated a mobile ski-making facility — ultimately leading to a permanent facility situated near Hoodoo’s lifts. Santiam Snolab was born.
Hank Gulledge, Director of the Snolab, says the facility has been turning out skis and boards, year-round, for almost three years. “I came on board before Santiam Snolab was named or the facility was completely finished.”
As a lifelong surfer and a snowboarder, shaping and boutique manufacturing skis and boards slope side is a dream come true for Gulledge. After retiring from a career as a public school teacher, including decades of instruction in the woodworking department, Gulledge says very little of what he does now is the same as what he was taught by his first ski building instructors. “Although I’ve only been making skis and snowboards for a few years, our process is constantly evolving. We try to maintain a humble, open-minded approach to our workshop processes. In a nutshell, every time we help someone make a set of skis or a snowboard, we try to make the very best version we’ve ever made,” Gulledge earnestly reflects.
When asked asked what the best part of his job may be, Gulledge shares, “Well, I mean ... c’mon! What’s not to like?!? The view ... we’ve got the best office view in the world nestled next to ski patrol right in front of Hoodoo’s main lift. Also, watching the satisfaction of students of all ages in awe that they built a set of skis or a snowboard with their own hands. We usually start out relationships with our clients as strangers. After the process is over, more often than not, we are friends.”
Reminiscing about the most inspiring projects he’s ushered, Gulledge notes, “I like working with younger people, especially those who are new to snow sports or those who don’t necessarily have the economic means to get started in the hobby. Seeing kids’ eyes light up when they realize that if they work hard, they can create anything is a special moment.
As a former schoolteacher, I also love showing all the practical applications for the math required, like using equations they may have thought they’d never need in real life. Clients have ranged in age from 8 to 80.
Here’s how it works. A client spends a few weeks working with Snolabs (usually remotely) as they
define a solid performance and aesthetic design which they mutually agree on. After solidifying what will be built and what it’s going to look like, typically a single day is scheduled for the client to come in and physically build their skis or snowboard by hand, while the building team is present to assist in all the parts of the processes.
“A typical workshop takes the better part of a full day,” explains Gulledge, “and during that time, the client will personally build about 80% of their project with their own hands. Because epoxy has a cure time, and we also apply a clear coat for a UV protectant, we typically try to have our clients receive their completed project a week or so after the workshop date.”
Some of the more technical designs Snolab has been styling out include ultra-light touring skis, multi-point serration edge profiles for snowboards, bullet proof polycarbonate under boot base stock for park skis, and deep “V” swallow tails for deep powder and high-speed carving performance.
Of course, they also take on projects outside that fall outside the box. “Keeping an open mind,” Gulledge says, “is the name of the game. Recently,
we had a client bring in a tired old monoski that he purchased decades ago. This client couldn’t find anyone selling monoskis so he came to us with his old one and his unusual request. Immediately, we began to think about how to use our existing tooling to create such an unusual shape. In the end, we got it done and the client was totally stoked.”
Santiam Snolab is a department of Hoodoo Ski Area, in a similar fashion to the Autobahn tube hill, food services, or the ski rental department. McFarland conceived Snolab as an inspiration to provide a location for families and individuals to discover the art and science of custom ski and snowboard making. “As a general rule,” notes Gulledge, “most people take for granted what goes into making what they strap to their feet to go have fun in the snow. People who come through the Snolab make more than skis or snowboards — they have a unique experience that forever changes the way they think about snow sports and create lifelong memories,
whether they have a solo workshop or come in with friends or family.”
What’s in the forecast for Snolabs' future? Catch the crew representing at Warren Miller movie events in Bend and Portland, answering questions and displaying examples of skis and snowboards that have been made in their workshop. “We will also be collaborating with The Brown Owl for nine consecutive Tuesday evenings starting on November 29th. Snolab will be there to raise awareness about our unique facility, collaborate with an educational foundation to raise money to create scholarships for students to participate in their own ski/ snowboarding workshops, and give away some cool stuff!” said Gulledge.
Gulledge also hints that including split boards in workshop offerings could be coming soon. Fingers crossed.
Santiam Snolab is located at Hoodoo Ski Area, 27400 Big Lake Road, Sisters. Visit them at santiamsnolab.com or call (541) 822-3799.

How Central Oregon cows are eating well and helping reduce brewery waste
Every morning Rob Rastovich steps outside his Central Oregon ranch home and looks west to the mountains. He’s studying the snowpack on the Cascades and checking the wind. He’s trying to determine how much longer water will be flowing down rivers, down streams, and into irrigation canals that feed his fields, which feed his cows. If the wind is blowing from the north, it usually brings dry and brutal weather. Wind blowing from the south means rain may be coming. Storms don’t always reach his 200-acre ranch located 10 miles east of Bend, but it may reach the mountains and eventually flow to where he needs it.
Daily observations of weather, snowpack, wind, animals, and plant life help Rastovich determine what steps to take next. And he’s always thinking ahead. “Any farmer or rancher who isn’t thinking ten months to two years ahead is already out of the game,” Rastovich says. “Right now, we’re all talking about how plentiful the juniper berries look and we’re excited. A lot of berries are a sign there may be a good winter.”
Rastovich Family Farms specializes in a marbled delicacy they’ve coined “Barley Beef,” the result of stress-free, freerange cattle being fed a combination of grass fertilized by “beer water” and leftover beer mash, both rich in nitrogen and nutrients. Cuts of beef are graded by the amount of fat content or marbling (think New York steak, ribeye, tenderloin, brisket, etc.). Purely grass- and forage-fed animals and game are typically less marbled and leaner because their diets are lower in calories and energy. Barley Beef gets the best of both worlds: grass and beer.
“This idea isn’t new,” says Rastovich. “My grandparents started this farm in 1919, which was also the year Prohibition started. But my grandpa liked beer, so he brewed a little and hid it. Then he fed the mash to the cows. We didn’t invent
the idea. We just started telling people about it.” And with Bend quickly becoming the beer capital of the world, this idea is solving multiple community problems.
Breweries produce tens of thousands of gallons of wastewater high in nitrogen and other minerals, which can’t be dumped into city wastewater pipes. Instead, a company called Agri-Cycle picks it up directly from breweries and upcycles it by watering various farmers’ fields. Rastovich Family Farms, also known as Barley Beef, collects the still nutrient-rich spent grains (mash or hops) from four local breweries and feed it to their cattle. At the end of the day, at least one brewery, Bend Brewing Company, serves Barley Beef at their restaurant, fully completing the cycle.
The beer making process extracts flavor, proteins and a lot of sugars to make each specific type of brew. Or as Rastovich explains, “Imagine making a cup of drip coffee, where you pour water over grounds through a filter. That first cup has all the flavor, the caffeine, the nutrients. If you pour water over the same grounds again, the second cup is not as rich but still has some flavor, proteins, starches and nutrients. The second cup is what we feed the cattle.”
The symbiotic relationship between breweries and Barley Beef not only produces less waste and reduces expenses for both companies, the result is beautifully marbled beef. Rastovich’s cows graze freely in open-air pastures with epic views of the Cascade Mountain Range. Their grass is grown onsite with nutrient-rich “beer water” as fertilizer and mountain water directly from the Cascades. Their diet is supplemented by nourishing spent grains, never artificial growth substances or hormones. And their caretakers are third-and fourth generation ranchers passionate about supporting local businesses and reducing their impact in creative ways.
This rare Century Farm (as awarded by the Oregon Farm Bureau and Oregon Agricultural Education Foundation) started back in 1919 when two Yugoslavian immigrants George and Anna Rastovich moved to Central Oregon, benefiting from the 1862 Homestead Act, which offered free land to interested Euro-Americans. They and other family members were given 40-acres each by the U.S. government on the traditional lands of the Wasco (Wasq’u), Warm Springs (Tana’nma), and Northern Paiute (Numu) peoples.
In the 1950s, their youngest of seven children took over the farm, married and raised two kids including today’s chief staff leader Rob Rastovich who, in 2006, left his full-time computer programming job in the San Francisco Bay area to return to his family’s farm. His daughter Emily Rastovich (one of Rastovich’s five children) recently took over the day-to-day operations while Rob remains the big picture guy. Over the last 100 years, life on the farm hasn’t changed much except for some noteworthy innovations cleverly combining the tech world with ranching.
“It’s actually a great balance,” says Rastovich, who still runs his “internet of things” company called ThingLogix. “Tech informs ranching and ranching informs tech. I’ll be working at my computer all morning, then head out to feed the cows. I typically figure out whatever tech problem I was working on while outside tending the ranch.” Combining his unique backgrounds in ranching and computer programming has led Rastovich to prototype many innovations at his family ranch. For example, they’re working on how to build a smart coral system by adding RFID tags to each animal’s ear. When cows move around the ranch, certain gates will automatically open or close, reducing the need
“One thing you’ll find on any ranch is that necessity really is the mother of invention.”
for stressful roundups by cowboys that puts toughtasting stress hormones in the beef. Less stressed cows mean more succulent beef.
Other innovations ThingLogix has made for clients include smart irrigation systems that monitor soil dampness and nutritional needs, automatically watering and adding certain nutrients to specific areas as needed by the plants; robotic pickers that travel between rows searching for and plucking out unwanted weeds; and cold chain food storage monitors to make sure customers are notified if freezers dip below or above required temperatures, potentially saving thousands of dollars in perishable goods. Rastovich and his ThingLogix team are computer programmers who study an organization’s problems, work together to find solutions, and write computer programs that the customer can then attach to hardware they purchase from a third party or design themselves.
“One thing you’ll find on any ranch is that necessity really is the mother of invention,” Rastovich says. “Go to any farm and you’ll find inventions big and small. They have a need and then create something to make their work easier, something that improves their quality of life and products. Really, ranching and tech have a ton of cross over.”
But Rob doesn’t just look for solutions within the ranching and farming industries. He really is a big picture guy. “It’s about taking a step back,” he says, “and looking at the whole picture, across time. Especially with farming, there is a cycle happening that cannot be undone. Every morning, I walk out and look out at the mountains, because I need to know how much snow is up there. I need to think about what’s coming next.”
Seeking solutions is in Rastovich’s nature. Things he thinks about daily are water, soil, and distribution solutions. Once upon a time, his farm and others had irrigation available seven months a year from April through October. Now that window has narrowed to four months, April to July.
Conversations about water are vitally important to farmers, ranchers, recreationalists, business
owners, and homeowners. Which is why Rastovich is on the Arnold Irrigation District Board of Directors, working with others in Deschutes Basin to find solutions for how ground and surface water could be managed together. Currently in Deschutes Basin, surface water (rivers, streams, irrigation canals) is allocated to farmers and rangers while ground water (caverns, springs, aquifers) are allocated to other users. According to Rastovich, “If we can manage surface and ground water together, the future looks bright. But this is a political and legal issue we need to come together on. If we can’t come together, my bet is we won’t have farming in Central Oregon within three years.” But Rastovich feels optimistic. These conversations are taking place. Certain companies are working with Deschutes County to do a proof of concept with public meetings that gather community ideas and input.
Meanwhile, Rastovich is focusing on amending the soil on his farm in these ways: adding beer water to input nutrients, rotating crops, growing plants like hemp to extract crud from the soil, planting plants that require less water, and strategically timing their irrigation schedule.
Making Direct-to-Consumer More Convenient
One gap in the system Rastovich thinks about is distribution. Barley Beef produces roughly 20,000 quarter-pound burgers weekly. The problem is getting that much beef directly to consumers. Instead, they send roughly 35 cows to Klamath Falls every week for processing into approximately 15,000 pounds of ground beef and other cuts. That meat is repackaged for major wholesalers like Sysco (rebranded as Grass Valley Beef), shipped to a distribution center in Portland, then redistributed to grocery stores like Whole Foods in Bend. At 5pm, customers go shopping for dinner and buy local beef that’s already traveled 600 miles.
“If we could truly buy local, we would eliminate cold storage and so much fuel costs. There is a solution,” Rastovich says. “We just need to take a step back to find it. Come out to the ranch and meet us and
have an experience. The more we can connect with one another, sell at farmers markets, and connect consumers with ranchers, the better.”
One way Rastovich Family Farms is bridging the distribution gap is by offering real-time deliveries via Uber Eats and Door Dash, so consumers can order local meat more conveniently and immediately. Barley Beef also sells directly to consumers with bulk orders ranging from a sampler pack to a full butchered cow that fills an entire chest freezer and can feed a family of six with two or three meals per week for one year. Bend also has a year-round, indoor farmers’ market called Locavore that sells meats, vegetables, fruits, jams, honey, breads, and more that are grown and sourced from local farms and ranches.
If we learned anything from the pandemic, it’s that America’s food and product supply chains are fragile. Reducing the need to ship cattle from Bend to Klamath Falls to Portland back to Bend would reduce fuel, refrigeration and labor costs. And this is not just a Central Oregon issue. The same thing is happening across the country. Finding new solutions to decentralize federally approved meat processing plants would allow more localized butchering and increase food security in regions where cattle and other livestock are raised.
To buy locally, consumers usually need to think
a little further ahead, to already have purchased Barley Beef and put it in their freezer. But that’s not always reality. Meanwhile, farmers and ranchers are growing and processing food every day. And they can’t slow down nature. Each week, they need to make sure their meats are processed and sold.
But Rastovich is an inspiring guy. He knows there are answers. It’s just a matter of thinking bigger, talking to people, and floating ideas until solutions start to form.
On the back of Barley Beef trucks there’s a recycling symbol with these words at each corner of the triangle: Beef, Beer, Bend. For nearly 15 years, the century-old Rastovich Family Farms has been nurturing symbiotic relationships that keep supply chains local, help solve community waste and resource problems, and produce delicious tasting beef. They’ve done such a great job that other ranchers in Central Oregon are starting to follow suit. Luckily, there are plenty of breweries to go around.
Currently, Barley Beef collects mash from these local companies: Bend Brewing Company, 10-Barrel, Sunriver Brewing, and Oregon Distilleries. Bend Brewing Company is serving Barley Beef in their downtown restaurant as well. Taste the full circle for yourself and see what inspirations come your way!
If we learned anything from the pandemic, it's that America's food and supply chains are fragile.

You’ve heard that absence makes the heart grow fonder. And for some couples, the proverb is true; but for others, there is no such thing as spending too much time together. Especially if they share a mutual dream, and their time is spent living their dream. Being in a happy marriage takes work. Running any kind of restaurant—big or small, successful or not—requires a whole lot more work. The idea of having your life partner as your business partner might make some (or most) shudder at the thought of the constant collaboration, but not these four couples—they wouldn’t have it any other way. Each husband/wife team owns and operates a popular, successful restaurant. Each have the unfailing support of the other. Each would say their staff is an extension of their family and their restaurant a second home. Though there are similarities, each couple has a unique story and each are inspiring.
Becerra’s on 6th Bistro
Working with your spouse means more time in each other’s company and that works well for Sheila and Moises Becerra. You can tell the moment you meet the couple that they enjoy being in each other’s presence and that working together is a natural extension of their relationship.
The Becerras could have retired instead of opening a restaurant, but that wasn’t in their cards or in their nature. Moises, a veteran who decided to tackle culinary school upon his retirement and Sheila, whose varied work background includes being a farmer, decided to pursue another dream together instead of resting on their laurels. They’re both passionate about good food and good customer service. That passion led them down the path of restaurant ownership.
“We love going out for dinner and enjoying a nice ambience, great food, and great customer service. We decided to create a place that had those components that we appreciate every time we go out,” explains Moises. Sheila reiterates that they have always loved entertaining and hosting dinner parties. Of course, running a restaurant is on another level than hosting the occasional dinner party. The food business can be challenging, but as Sheila puts it, “We just went for it. It was and is a challenge—but a wonderful challenge. We are thrilled. We really are.”
It was several years back that the Becerras found the building that would ultimately be home to their bistro dream—an old 1920s hotel building in downtown Redmond that was in dire need of renovation and restoration. They bought the property and went to work. While the building was being transformed into the elegant, well-appointed restaurant it is now, Chef Moises was designing, testing, and planning the menu.
From freshly baked baguettes to classic French offerings like Beef Wellington, Duck Cassoulet, and Coq au Vin, the carefully curated menu is an immersion of
CHEF MOISES BECERRA & SHEILA BECERRA
French-inspired American cuisine featuring fresh seasonal ingredients and high quality meats and seafood. A standout among standouts is the White Corn Agnolotti with Truffle with handmade pasta, corn puree, spring vegetable nage, mascarpone, mushrooms sautee, finished with shaved truffle.
Becerra’s is fine dining at its absolute finest with impeccable service, delicious food, warm staff, and inviting ambiance—everything Sheila and Moises ever wanted in a place of their own so others can truly enjoy an evening dining out.
This highly lauded bistro also features an extensive wine list with a variety of wines from the Pacific Northwest, California, and other regions around the world, plus a nice selection of handcrafted cocktails and mocktails.
While Chef Moises leads the back of house and oversees each plate of food before it’s served, Sheila runs the front of the house, greeting each party as they arrive. Both ensure each guest is treated like VIP royalty. “Our vision is exactly the same, and we support each other every day,” they say. But they give all the credit to their staff, “We strongly believe that the most important asset we have is our employees and everything we accomplish is a result of team effort.”
That staff includes Chef de Cuisine Tim Pirisky and Sous-Chef Blake Foster who work in tandem with Chef Moises to deliver traditional bistro
favorites along with daily specials, prepared to perfection. Servers Brian Golly and Scott Tracht deliver exemplary service with attention to every detail.
The Becerras originally opened their bistro in September 2019. In March 2020 they were mandated to close due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Their dream was put on hold, but somehow the couple clung together and held strong for almost 18 months before re-opening in November 2021.
“It’s been a labor of love and we are very happy to share it with our guests once again,” beamed the couple upon celebrating their anniversary in November 2022. Guests are embraced by the warmth and beauty of Becerra’s immediately upon arrival. While the space is modern and updated, it still retains some historical elements and is reminiscent of a French brasserie with belle epoque and art deco design elements.
The Becerras are an exceptional example of a husband/wife team owning and operating a successful restaurant focused on impeccable service, welcoming ambiance, and elevated food.

“We love going out for dinner and enjoying a nice ambience and great food and great customer service. We decided to create a place that had those components that we appreciate every time we go out.”
Fine Northwestern cuisine with a Southern twist. That’s how Zydeco Kitchen & Cocktails, famous for their Barbecue Shrimp & Southern Grit Cake appetizer, among other signature dishes, describes their menu. Husband and wife partners Steve and Cheri Helt opened the restaurant together in 2004, and have since garnered local awards, national recognition, and many loyal customers.
It was a dream they never imagined coming true. The couple contributes their success to luck, guidance, follow-through, and love, which is how it all began. When they met in high school, she liked his smile and energy, so she asked him to the Sadie Hawkins dance. That was 35 years ago. They recently celebrated 30 years of marriage in October 2022.
It was Steve’s energy that propelled him up the corporate ladder to the position of VP for a large midwestern steakhouse. He and Cheri followed that huge corporation for years, living in 10 big cities in 11 years. Once their children came along, they both decided they wanted to slow down somewhat and figure out a different direction.
They had never anticipated living in Bend—much less owning their own restaurant—until they flew into Portland, took a hike on Mt. Hood, and ventured
over the pass to Central Oregon. Like so many other Central Oregonian transplants, they fell in love with the area and decided to put down roots. “We bought a really cheap house; cheap enough that we could work wherever if the restaurant didn’t pan out and still afford to live there,” Steve recalls.
“Owning a restaurant always seemed out of reach. So, when we had the opportunity to open our very own restaurant, we seized the moment,” Cheri remembers. “We felt like we would be able to prioritize family and serve Steve’s food at the same time.”
What’s it like working side-by-side with your spouse day in, day out? “We’re both there to do whatever needs to be done, and we both know what’s going on. Either one of us can do it, and the same thing comes out of both of our mouths.” That’s the upside of working with your spouse according to Chef Steve.
Cheri shares, “The restaurant business is always in flux and inventory and labor are expensive entities. There’s pressure in managing those difficult entities on a daily basis, and having your partner in life be your partner in that endeavor is awesome. You need a rock that’s solid, that you can depend on, and working with your spouse provides that solid dependability.”
While restaurateurs always do a lot of balancing to
CHEF STEVE HELT & CHERI HELT Zydeco Kitchen & Cocktails
keep their businesses thriving, the Helts say it was Olympic-sized balancing that had to be done during the COVID-19 pandemic. “The only reason we made it through was because we prioritized our co-workers,” they both agree. Co-workers is how the Helts refer to their employees. Cheri goes on to say, “Our family and our work family have been our commitment always, and what really matters is that commitment and what we do to keep that commitment.”
The Zydeco mission, even during the worst of the pandemic, was to keep employees employed and keep the restaurant putting out great food. “We wanted to keep the business alive while taking care of as many employees as we possibly could and be a pillar in the community at the same time,” Steve explains. It took creative, out-of-the-box thinking to figure out how to make it work.
Their Our Kitchen, Your Table meal donation program created during the height of the pandemic shutdown offered meals to dozens of underserved communities. In the process of creating the program, they saved some of their employees’ jobs and transformed federal assistance they were granted through the Paycheck Protection Program into a valuable community service.
And then, right before Father’s Day weekend 2021, while COVID restrictions were still intact, the Helts got a call from a production company working with Food Network’s Guy Fieri. Fieri wanted to feature the restaurant on his popular, long-running program Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. “It was one of the hardest times in general to shut down the restaurant to accommodate the filming, but it was such an honor to be on the show and it was fun. We are so glad we did it,” says Steve.
While a strong couple can move mountains it seems, they give credit for their continued success to their “village.” “It takes a village to run a restaurant, and we are blessed with staff and camaraderie. They’re doing a great job helping us run our business
we are nothing without our staff, our team, and our family. It takes all of us to run our organization
make it happen.”
Zydeco Kitchen & Cocktails is located at 919 Bond Street in downtown Bend, OR. They are open for lunch and dinner. Takout is also available. Call (541) 3122899 for reservations or visit zydecokitchen.com.

JOE KIM & LAURA KIM
Weathering the pandemic storm at a large downtown restaurant was part of the incentive for Joe and Laura Kim opening their own smaller restaurant. “We just kept talking about doing something smaller that didn’t require a big staff that could just be done with a couple of employees and us. We’ve never been afraid of doing the work ourselves,” Chef Joe Kim explains.
Chef Joe and his wife Laura met about 10 years ago while both were working at 5 Fusion & Sushi Bar in downtown Bend. Joe was the acclaimed chef at 5 Fusion for a dozen years, accumulating three James Beard nominations for Best Chef NW during his tenure. He also gained priceless skills and experience in notable, award-winning restaurants like The French Laundry, Masa and Eleven Madison Park to name a few. Laura was the front of house manager at the restaurant. The two worked well together and that led to dating, which led to marriage, and ultimately led to the couple opening their first restaurant together, Yoli.
Yoli opened in downtown Bend at the corner of Wall Street and Newport Avenue in June 2022. It’s Central Oregon’s only Korean restaurant, but it’s Korean with a twist, apropos for Chef Kim’s creative inclinations. Yoli, which means cuisine in Korean, honors the historic flavors of Korea intertwined with Kim’s modern, unique style. Although the pair weren’t
necessarily thinking of Korean when they were trying to decide what kind of place to open, thoughts of their family came into play.
“It came about because our daughter Elise was getting older and about to start school. You always hear stories from Asian chefs about how they ate weird foods growing up and kids would make fun of them, and we didn’t want that to happen to our children. So, it occurred to us to bring this food of my heritage (Kim is Korean American) to the community so they could get more used to it and that would benefit our kids, especially our youngest daughter who just started kindergarten,” Chef elaborates.
The Kims have two older children, Hannah and Lucas, who also spend a lot of time with their parents at the restaurant. Joe wanted his kids to feel at home in the new place. “I grew up in my dad’s restaurant. I didn’t like it and went away from it for years before eventually coming back to it.” He and Laura wanted to create an inviting space to make the entire family feel at home and make them smile since they knew they would be spending a lot of time at work—their home away from home.
Laura and Hannah chose most of the décor and did the decorating themselves, with Chef’s input of course. “There were lots of compromises. For example, I wanted a yellow circle on the walls. Joe wanted a fuzzy wall. Enter the fuzzy yellow circles,”
says Laura as she points to the big fuzzy yellow circles on two of the walls inside Yoli. The restaurant is small, with only 10 tables, but the bright pop of color mingled with natural wood and rice paper window coverings make for a very eclectic, inviting vibe.
And the compromising extends beyond the decorating scheme according to Laura, who is at the front of house again in their new endeavor. “While we do well working together, as I think he understands me pretty well and I understand him pretty well, there are times we don’t necessarily agree. At those points, we ask ourselves what the customer is going to want the most and that guides us to solutions should we not agree.”
Chef is grateful that it’s his wife giving him feedback at the end of the day. “I’m typically hiding in the kitchen cooking, so I don’t see customers’ reactions. If I don’t get feedback or good dialogue from her, I might keep making something customers don’t like, or quit making something that I don’t like making, but it’s what the customers love. So I appreciate that honest
dialogue I get from my partner.”
That feedback seems to be working well for the Kims. “We hope it continues like it has been so far,” Joe says. “It’s been going great, and people have been very accepting of the food whether they’ve had it before or not. Customers have been really happy about it, and my hope is that people will continue to try it. Our goal is to continue to make the food accessible and unintimidating.”
When the entire family is involved in a business, everybody has everything at stake and the Kims enjoy being in it together, as a couple—and as a family. “I enjoy it,” Laura admits. “Honestly, I wouldn’t see him otherwise if I weren’t here working alongside him. And I eat well. I like food and my husband keeps me very well fed. That’s definitely a bonus,” she laughs.
Yoli is located at 1133 NW Wall St., Suite 100 in Bend, OR. Open for lunch and dinner Sunday through Friday. Visit yolibend.com or call (541) 323-0480 for reservations and more information.

It’s a family affair at Ariana restaurant in Bend’s Westside. While it may be more common for married partners to split the duties between front of house and back of house in a restaurant, at Ariana’s, both Ariana and Andres Fernandez are chefs. Ariana’s mother Susan Asti is the general manager, while her father Glenn Asti is the beverage manager. The cheffing couple’s daughters Gabriella and Isabel have been raised in the restaurant—and according to Andres and Ariana, “have taught us how to prioritize our lives. Our family is always our focus.”
It all started back in 2002, when Ariana and Andres met while working alongside at a restaurant in downtown Bend. The young chefs quickly developed a mutual respect for each other’s cooking skills and work ethics and started spending time together outside of work, becoming best friends. Then they started dating and ultimately fell in love. By December 2004, they had opened Ariana, thanks to help from Ariana’s parents.
“We could never have done it without Ariana’s parents, Susan and Glenn,” declares Andres. “We had talked about our future in the industry and had dreams about one day having a restaurant of our own. Ariana’s parents believed in us and what we could do, so they offered their retirement savings to provide the capital to start Ariana.” Two months after opening the restaurant, the couple got engaged.
The Fernandezes still love working together and consider themselves an unbeatable team. “We are truly best friends, and we love working together,” Ariana states when asked what it’s like to work with her husband. “We share the burden of work, and we understand what the other is going through. We can depend on each other to pick up the slack if one of us is not 100 percent. We also share the joy of a job well done and celebrate achieving our goals and dreams together.”
Located in a charming craftsman bungalow on
Galveston Avenue, the restaurant has become famous for the dynamic duo’s fresh perspectives on classic dishes. The two work together to utilize a bounty of local and Pacific Northwest products to create extraordinary dishes. Along with a daily six-course chef’s tasting menu, there are also seasonal à la carte offerings, a vast and carefully selected wine list, and distinctive cocktails.
Despite their popularity, like other dining establishments, the Fernandezes have weathered their share of storms over the years including economic recession and the COVID-19 pandemic. They survived and are thankful. Ariana emphasized that gratitude with a powerful statement, “We will never take for granted the guests who love what we do and allow us to keep living our dream. We are committed to doing our very best to bring our guests an incredible experience every time they visit us.”
They are also grateful for their staff. “We continue to push and refine in every possible way. We’ve been able to do these things thanks to the hard work and dedication of an amazing team. The people who work or have worked with us are our family, and they bring this restaurant to life.”
When reflecting on all the years of working together, Ariana and Andres talk about the quiet mornings drinking coffee together, the time when it’s just the two them, chatting about the menu and the ideas they have, discussing what mushrooms are starting to come out, brainstorming a new flavor combination or cooking technique they want to try. “We are still working on our dreams and goals for our future and that’s beautiful,” Ariana says with a smile.
Ariana restaurant is located at 1304 NW Galveston Avenue in Bend, OR. Open at 5 pm for dinner, Wednesday thru Saturday. Call (541) 330-5539 or visit arianarestaurantbend.com for reservations and more information.

THE HOT SPOT
THE FLAMINGO ROOM
words DONNA BRITT images TAMBI LANE
One of the first things you’re likely to notice as you enter the ornately designed doors of The Flamingo Room is the plants. There are over 300 of them, and they’re everywhere! “I like the energy of plant stores [and] browsing in plant stores. It occurred to me ‘why couldn’t we have that same environment in a bar’,” explains co-owner Brian Trottier. They’re the backdrop and forefront among rusty, mismatched metal chairs and other rusty treasures that Trottier is proud to say he recycled from a junkyard in Powell Butte. “It’s an authentic, tropical vibe without being a Jimmy Buffett show. It’s more like a developing nation or a Florida bar after the apocalypse or after a horrible hurricane,” says Trottier. “Vaguely Equatorial” is another descriptor used by the owners (Trottier co-owns the bar with his wife Ashley) and staff.
The Trottiers also own San Simón, an intimate cocktail lounge with a romantic, bohemian vibe located in downtown Bend’s Tin Pan Alley. Trottier explains that opening a second bar is like deciding to have another child. All you remember is how much fun you had with the first one and how cute it was (at least in the beginning), forgetting all about the long, sleepless nights and dirty diapers. He says opening San Simón was way more fun to open than he had anticipated, so when he got another bar concept in his head, he felt compelled to do it again.
A relative newcomer to Bend’s long list of bars and cocktail lounges, The Flamingo Room’s discreet location in an unassuming business plaza off Century Drive on Bend’s west side has not kept people away. Trottier says it’s the locals that are responsible for the positive reception. “I go in there and recognize 75 per cent of the people in the place. People in Bend really support us, which is great because we thought it would be cool to open something more for the local crowd, something off the beaten path.”
Besides all the greenery and the funky mismatched décor, there’s the music which also lends to the eclectic vibe. Trottier makes the playlists himself, blending familiar songs with unfamiliar selections. His aim is huge diversity, playing everything from African music and Japanese garage rock to Cuban music and 1960s French pop along with Prince and Dr. Dre. That mix creates a “worldly” atmosphere, according to Trottier, and he says it works because of the way he weaves in the unfamiliar with the familiar.
Then there are the drinks. The cocktails at The Flamingo Room run the gamut and are largely inspired by the staff’s travels to areas around the equator. Rum and mezcal — warm weather spirits as Trottier describes them — are staples in the Flamingo’s cocktail repertoire. “We pride ourselves in using spirits that people think they don’t like and changing their minds about it. For example
the Jazz Daq #2 turns around what you think it’s going to be,” Trottier boasts. It’s made with rum, passionfruit, Cocchi Americano (an Italian aperitif wine) and fresh lime juice, and it’s already a Flamingo favorite. Another choice, among many, is the Contemplative and Brooding with mescal, pear brandy, fresh lime, and grapefruit. There’s also wine, beer, and mocktails. Trottier is proud of their curated liquor selection explaining that they’re not trying to have the biggest selection of any one thing but rather a well-rounded selection with some unconventional gins, mezcals, and Japanese liquors. Happy Hour happens every day from 4 pm to 6 pm with $8 well spirits and housemade tonic plus a house old fashioned and a red and white wine option.
There’s also the food: a creatively curated assortment of bites and bits which are delicious and satisfying. Similar to San Simón, guests get a small clipboard with a checklist menu attached to choose what they want. Dips & Nosh items include things such as Cucumber Salad, Onion Cashew Dip, and Fig & Olive Tapenade. Nibbles are things like pickled carrots, spicy pickled asparagus, seasoned pistachios, fresh snap peas, and bread with butter.
Conservas are Sardines in Vinegar, Line Caught Tuna in Olive Oil, Squid in Ink, mussels and cod. There are also Masa Empanadas, a simple green salad, and handmade chocolate bars by the local Fawkes Confectionery. All snack trays come with kettle or plantain chips as well.
“Our food is thought out. It’s not an apology. It’s not an accident. We wanted a more healthy feeling and even though we don’t advertise it, our food is predominantly vegan and vegetarian. It’s rare that you find a bar with those attributes, but why can’t the food make you feel better?” beams Trottier.
So if delicious drinks, tasty bites, fun décor, and mood-enhancing music mixes weren’t enough, Trottier says the thing he’s most proud of, the thing that gets overlooked too often, is the exceptional staff. As he puts it, “They’re just the nicest, most generous and gracious people, and that’s really the big thing that makes it all work — the dynamite staff!”
The Flamingo Room is located at 70 SW Century Dr., #130 in Bend. Visit theflamingoroombend.com for more information or call (541) 323-0472. Open every day 4 p.m. - late.

WHAT WE LOVE NOW
Masa Empanadas is a Bend story, a pandemic story, and an evolving story. After owner Emanuel Columbo left his native Argentina to become a professional dancer, the COVID-19 pandemic put Columbo’s illustrious dance career on hold and gave him and his husband, professional photographer Roland Bello, time to consider their subsequent move. The couple visited friends in Bend and as often happens, fell in love with the area and started looking for houses. Once settled, Columbo decided to pursue another passion: food, specifically empanadas, which he learned to make when growing up in Argentina. For the empanada neophytes, empanadas are crescent-shaped, savory, typically hand-held pies filled with meat, veggies, spices, or cheese.
Developing his own vegetarian twist on his family’s traditional recipe, Columbo started out offering two vegetarian choices and accepted orders online. Masa now has a food truck at Spoken Moto with ready-to-eat empanadas and sides such as Cuban-style black beans and rice and homemade sauces such as chimichurri and mango chutney. Masa Empanadas are handmade from scratch with favorite fillings such as oyster mushrooms and goat cheese, curried potato, and spinach, ricotta, and walnut. “Our mission is to bring quality, authentic, and culturally diverse food to Bend,” says Bello. If you’re in the mood for breakfast, their first vegan breakfast empanada was recently released.
Frozen empanadas are still available to order online, and you’ll also find Masa Empanadas on the menu at the Flamingo Room. Watch for them at big area events and consider contacting them for private catering. -Donna Britt
Find the Masa Empanadas truck at Spoken Moto at 310 SW Industrial Way in Bend. Also on the menu at The Flamingo Room at 70 SW Century Drive in Bend. Visit empanadasmasa.com or call (510) 219-3635.

Loved by all who partake, The Victorian Café, affectionately known as The Vic, has been voted one of the best brunch and breakfast places numerous times in Central Oregon publications over the past couple of decades. Established in 1983, The Victorian Pantry was one of Bend’s original local breakfast diners. Current proprietor John Nolan purchased the restaurant in 2002 with the goal of rebranding the establishment with a fresh look and attitude and taking the menu up a creative notch or two. The Victorian Café was born, and the mission has been accomplished.
From the gigantic Proud Mary Bloody and 16-ounce Man-mosa to the daily selection of over nine Eggs Benedict specialties, breakfast, lunch, or brunch at The Vic is an experience not to be missed. The Vic serves breakfast and brunch foods reimagined, fusing the classics with creative and decadent combinations. Examples include The Green Hornet omelet with fresh spinach, asparagus, jalapeños, scallions and Gruyere; the Caramel Apple French Toast topped with homemade caramel sauce, Granny Smith apples and freshly whipped cream; and the Big Easy Benedict with prawns and housemade andouille sausage.
If you have to wait for a table, and you likely will, there is comfortable, heated outdoor seating near gas fire pits and an outside bar available with spiked hot chocolate and those famous Proud Mary bloody marys. -Donna Britt
The Victorian Café is located at 1404 NW Galveston Ave. in Bend. Visit victoriancafebend.com or call (541) 382-6411. Open daily from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.

COFFEE & COMMUNITY
Home to numerous food, drink, and music establishments — including the High Desert Music Hall at the south end and Otto’s Landing on the north end — the 7th street corridor in Redmond is an evolving, vibrant scene. Here, in the circa 1940s Patrick Building, also home to Redmond's original hospital, resides a roastery and social club known as Junction. Owner/Operators Mitch Thisius and Bo Olson were inspired by the pandemic to provide a place where folks could come back together and socialize over a sip and a bite. The renovated space is open, spacious, and well-appointed, big enough to host a special event or party, and cozy enough for a coffee date.
Committed to simplicity, quality, and community, Junction sources the best local products and ingredients available, serving them without ego while promoting genuine interaction. The daily menu features coffees and espresso favorites you would expect — macchiatos, cortados, cappuccinos — alongside homemade bakery goods such as coffee cake, croissants and banana chocolate nut bread. You can also grab a tasty breakfast sandwich or choose from a selection of scones, both savory and sweet. The Junction is open daily from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. -Donna Britt
Junction Roastery Social Club is located at 708 SW Deschutes Ave. in Redmond. Visit junctionroastery.com for more information.

From artistic inspiration to OG classics, be sure to seek out these seasonal sippers
words K.M. COLLINS
What’s a winter warmer you ask? Oregon beer snobs know it as a seasonal limited release specialty brew that’s only available during the coldest months of the year. These sudsy unicorns are highly sought after because they often hold themes reminiscent of the snowy mountains we love.
In fact, the very powder we pray for every winter, after shredded and carved by the edge of our boards and skis, melts in the spring and makes its way to town through a circuitous basalt watershed. Some say it takes upwards of 20 years for a melted drop of snow to arrive in Bend’s cache of pristine drinking water. Though timing is fuzzy, what is known is that the very water where baby brews are incepted has its origin in the same snowpack we worship.
So, while you’re tearing it up out there in the powder on the flanks of Mount Bachelor this winter, remember, the storm cycle that’s giving you free refills today, might just be foaming up your cup for a second round in a couple decades. If that doesn’t winter warm your heart, I don’t know what will.
ONE-OF-A-KIND: THE WINTER WARMER THAT STARTED IT ALL
Way back in 1988 when Deschutes Brewery first opened its doors, Jubelale, a toffee and dusted cocoa flavored seasonal (this first of its kind around these parts) was the first beer ever bottled on-site. And forget the growlers, this rich and spicy beer was hand bottled in wine bottles straight from the taps in Bend’s original downtown public house especially for the holidays. Later Jubelale became Deschutes’ winter seasonal, now known as the popularized “winter warmer” style. An ABV of 6.7% makes it perfect for those chilly days in Bend. Although flavors change slightly each year due to
Mother Nature’s impact on the ingredients, the recipe has remained the same over all these years.
Erin Rankin, Corporate Communications Manager explains, “Jubelale has a special place in our hearts internally and each year we’re so excited for its release the joke among our team is always “it’s the best Jubel yet!”
As a fun annual holiday twist, for nearly three decades Jubelale’s labels have featured original artwork from locally commissioned artists. Rotating both artist and artwork each year, Rankin shares, “[This] brings something unique to this brand. Each year we host the artist at the pub during the release of Jubelale and they sign posters of their artwork for fans. Attending has become an annual tradition for many locals. This year’s distinctive design for the 2022 release was created by Francisco Morales, a freelance Latinx illustrator and designer based in Portland, Oregon.”
In Morales’ far out design, an ethereal depiction of a winter landscape was conjured from his first winter in the Pacific Northwest. “This is inspired by my first experience of snow and winter in Oregon. I am a child of the Coachella Valley desert where rain and moisture are a rare occurrence. I’ll never forget my first trip to the Pacific Northwest, and nothing would prepare me for the winter and snowfall where the sound dampens and light changes, as if you are on another planet,” describes Morales. “As a collaborator for this year’s Jubelale design, this piece attempts to capture the emotions of that extraterrestrial feeling.” Morales’ work can be found at @laylowcreative. Rankin notes the call for artists just opened for artists outside of Oregon and across the U.S for 2023 packaging.

Seasonal Six-Pack of Winter Warmers
RED CHAIR NORTHWEST PALE ALE Deschutes Brewing Company
Malt: Pale, Crystal, Munich, Carapils, Pilsner Hops: Cascade, Centennial Alc/Vol: 6.2%
Only available when the skiing and riding is best in Central Oregon, Red Chair is named for an OG, slow-as, local favorite lift at Mount Bachelor. Like its namesake, Red Chair three-seater is worth one slightly slower than average spin just for the history. Manifested as a beer, Red Chair is a citrus punch of big IPA flavors minus the expected, one-dimensional, hop sledgehammer. Carefully selected specialty malts round out the edges of Red Chair for a complex flavor profile and a copper-colored brew. Red Chair has been described as walking into a hop cooler filled with fresh pine needles. Grab yourself a six-pack of this well balanced, drinkable, pale ale before it’s gone for the season—like fleeting fresh powder. Red Chair will only be here as long as the snow lasts. For a bonus round, check out the aforementioned Jubelale, also by Deschutes Brewing.
POWDER KEG Worthy Brewing
Malt: Crystal Hops: Centennial/Chinook and Cascade/Columbus Alc/Vol: 7.1%
Aggressive and balanced like the best winter snowstorms, Powder Keg delivers a cold weather punch. This red-hued festive IPA is loaded with hop flavor and aroma from the double dry hopping brew process and a generous dose of crystalizing malts. Like the north wind blowing a gale through Central Oregon and kicking up scents of the high desert alpine landscape, pine and citrus dominate the aroma and flavor of this winter warmer. When you’re ready to light a late-night fire during the long dark evenings this winter, Powder Keg will give you all the fuel and heat you need until dawn. If you’re having a taster at Worthy Brewing, check out the celestial bodies in the winter sky via their Hopservetory, which features a telescope and expert astronomers on any given night.
MOUNTAIN RESCUE DRY HOP PALE ALE GoodLife Brewing
Malt: A slight malt backbone Hops: NW hops Alc/Vol: 5.5% IBUs: 40
Created in recognition of the volunteer and career folks who keep us safe in alpine environments day in and day out, Mountain Rescue is a longstanding local’s favorite winter warmer staple. As clean and crisp (with hints of citrus and pine) as the slopeside avalanche terrain ski patrol navigates and dynamites, post storm cycle, Mountain Rescue is there, waiting in the wings to quench that emergency thirst. Brewers say it’s an invitingly clear and golden colored pale ale with aroma that balances floral notes with a slight malt backbone. A 2011 Bend Brewfest People’s Choice Award winner, 2014 Bronze Medal winner at the Best Of Craft Beer Awards and a 2017 Bronze Medal winner at the Tastings World Beer Championships, Mountain Rescue will pull you back to stable ground when you’re slipping over the edge this winter.
SNO’D IN WINTER IPA Bend Brewing Company
Malt: 2-row, light carastan, rye and Golden Promise Hops: Comet, Chinook, Amarillo and Ekuanot Alc/Vol: 6% IBUs: 45
Thought of locally as the most sensible winter warmer IPA, Sno’d In goes down with a balance of piney and orange rind flavor. A collaboration with Central Oregon snowboard company SnoPlanks, the two companies are kindred spirits with a shared dedication to handcrafted quality and love of the outdoors. After all, hand crafting local beer is not unlike hand forging locally built snowboards. After a day of shoveling waist deep powder off your front porch, or into a kicker in the backcountry, enjoy this microbrew at Bend Brewing Company’s landmark, waterfront, downtown brewery. Or take a six-pack to-go and cozy up in front of the fire at home— Sno’d In style.
SKUNK APE RED IPA Boneyard Beer
Malt: A gnarly malt backbone
Hops: Cascade, Simcoe, Centennial, Chinook, Galaxy, CTZ, Cryo Lotus, Ekuanot Oil and Citra Oil Alc/Vol: 6%
An original collaboration with LibTech Snowboards, this dank, hop-forward India Red Ale will thrill tastebuds from the bunny slopes to the cornice. Raw and built for champagne powder days, legend has it this frothy titillator was forged from primeval snowboard culture. Its namesake harkens to the rarity of brewing the perfect IRA (red IPA), a holy-grail, difficult to pull off beer style full of mouthfeel and caramel malt notes. This, juxtaposed with Lib Tech’s rare Skunk Ape style, wide and floaty pow board. Both IRAs and Skunk Ape boards are few and far between gems inspired by and for powder days. Signature floral and earthy vibes in the brew fit the bill as homage to the quality snowboard gear LibTech has produced since the beginning of the sport. Throw back a Skunk Ape—a powder-centric beer built to quench the deep thirst that can only come from a day of powder slashes and shredding.
KRIS KRINGLE McMenamins Old St. Francis School
Malt: Northwest Pale, Munich, Wheat, Caramel Steam, Crystal 150, Baird’s Chocolate Hops: Simcoe, Mosaic Alc/Vol: 6.85% IBUs: 69
In the spirit of the original jolly old elf and his nocturnal ramblings, McMenamins' brewers have created a Santa themed namesake beer, Kris Kringle. The toasty caramel and fig flavors will evoke delightful remembrances of holiday cheer, while two hop varieties, Simcoe and Mosaic, added in multiple stages deliver the gift of intense flavor and aroma. Available on tap or in cans on location at Old St. Francis School, or an alternate McMenamins brick and mortar which are scattered across the Pacific Northwest, Kris Kringle boasts mouthwatering yuletide notes. And when consumed against the colorful and quirky backdrop of McMenamins' rebooted hotels, cinemas, schools and bathhouses, it only enhances the mystery and flavors of the season. If you’re at Old St. Francis School enjoying a Kris Kringle, be sure to ask around about the secret rooms and Broom Closet.

Boyd Cave is a natural lava tube within Deschutes National Forest on the northern flank of Newberry volcano. Located approximately twelve miles southeast of Bend, Boyd Cave is an 1880-foot-long lava tube with well-preserved basalt formations and is reached by a short 0.8-mile out-and-back trail. As you descend into the cave via a metal staircase that goes down into the cave about twenty feet, you will be completely immersed in darkness, so make sure to bring a flashlight or headlamp. The chilly cave is at a constant temperature just below 50 degrees Fahrenheit, so be prepared with a sweater or jacket. Because of animal-borne pathogens and diseases affecting the bat population found in this cave, dogs are not allowed inside Boyd Cave as well as surrounding caves. This is a popular destination for locals and visitors alike and is open year-round.

Crooked River Ranch GC
Not far off the beaten path in the heart of Central Oregon, nestled between the Deschutes and Crooked River canyons that formed over thousands of years, is a warm and friendly community called Crooked River Ranch. Crooked River Ranch GC is home to one of the most spectacular holes in golf, the No. 5 Canyon hole. Here you will catch a view of the beautiful Crooked River Canyon and the river from hundreds of feet above. The ultimate challenge is to hit the tee shot across the corner of the canyon wall to the green. At a mere 220 yards to cut the corner, it is just the fear of losing a ball and strokes to par that makes it tough. This is just one of the many fabulous sights you will experience as you make your way around the golf course.

Their ode to Mexican favorites includes dishes like the Mole Poblano, made from a 75-year-old family recipe, and probably the best reminder of their reverence to historical cooking methods, and their Carne Azada, which you can’t go wrong with, especially when combined with chimichurri sauce and fresh tortillas. Their traditional Peruvian dish Ceviche Traditional is one of several mouth-watering seafood dishes that must be tried.

OWN A PIECE OF HISTORY
This pair of Koa wood settees are exact replicas of the ﬁrst Clef benches (1836 ~ 1912) made by Henry Weeks, Jr., one of the most distinguished native Hawaiian wood craftsmen in late 19th century Hawai`i. Of three pairs Weeks made for the Wall family’s Kona Inn, just one set remains in family hands. This matched set, replicated in the early 1970s from that original pair, was crafted by Robert Shepherd, a well-known craftsman and furniture maker living and working in Kamuela, Hawaii. Submitted to the ﬁrst state-wide woodwork competition on Oahu, they garnered all three top awards: Best of Show, Exhibitors’ Choice, and Peoples’ Choice. They’re unique for their honeyhued coloration and notable markings: the chatoyance, or wood iridescence, of the wonderfully matched “clef” backboards and the much rarer bird’s eye speckling on their full round façade and armrests. Honey-toned Koa occurs in less than 10% of all Koa cut, but only 10% of that Koa has the so highly prized rippled, curly markings. As for bird’s eye, just one in a thousand trees has this unusual characteristic! When all three factors combine (i.e., 1 in 10, 10% and 1 in a thousand), the wood used to (re-)create these settees makes them extraordinary, rare, and desirable.
