2017—Three Mountains

The smoke from Oregon’s Cinder Butte Fire between Bend and Burns briefly dissipated on Saturday from the breezes and the skies were clear enough that I actually could see Mt. Bachelor and the Sisters and Broken Top.  Little Lava Lake is the source of the Deschutes River.  In the distance  is South Sister to the left, Broken Top in the middle, and Mt. Bachelor at the right.  A few paddle boarders are visible in the aqua waters beneath Mt. Bachelor but the haze from the fire is still visible around the mountains and it returned the next day, obscuring everything again.
