Suttle Lake Lodge

Last weekend, my book group spent a wonderful weekend at Suttle Lake Resort on the Santiam Pass near Sisters, Oregon. The sketch depicts the view from our cabin window. We saw an otter, bald eagle, a couple of swans and many ducks.
We stayed in the historic 1925 Pointe Cabin right on the lake and creek.

The week before, it snowed but the rain melted most of it by the time we got there.

Black Butte towered over the lake. The Lodge and our cabin are on the distant shore.

The other direction gave us a spectacular view of Mt. Washington and the sunset.

The full moon reflected in the lake.

Another view of Mt. Washington the next day as we hiked around the lake.

The mushers getting ready to take off at Hoodoo as we snow shoed around the area.

What a beautiful place to be! and you have lots of images from which to make drawings later. Retreats with good friends are so much fun.

Thanks for your support and encouragement on my blog, I'm finally getting the hang of it I think!
