This is just a quick note. I have to hit the road soon. I just wanted to thank my friend Phil in Bend, Oregon. Jane and I met Phil on the Camino de Santiago in 2011 and he insisted that I stop to see him as I crossed Oregon.
He and his family were exceptional hosts and made me feel like a king. He took time from his busy schedule to give me a tour of the immediate area.
He showed me his “secret” gulch where we explored various flora and fauna of the area, this was my first exposure to the desert regions of Oregon, and I found it fascinating.
Thanks so much for having me in Phil and I hope I can reciprocate one day.
