this was a really neat event. The only think I would suggest is addition additional tables and duplicate the dishes so the lines are not so long to get a taste of the delicious food that is made. I plan on attending next year!

We had a great Fall tour on the Deschutes River with our guide Clayton between Bentham and Dillon Falls! Scenery was gorgeous and Clayton added history, geological and wildlife commentary that made the tour even more interesting. I would highly recommend this easy tour.

We had a blast! The whole experience was exceptional :) The wildlife was lush, the river was very relaxing, and our guide Christine was so awesome. Now I know why Tumalo Creek is such a rock in our community. Thanks guys!
