And so I'm back in Bend Oregon. Have I mentioned that traffic in the unincorporated areas is managed by round-abouts?
Each rotary has it's own land-
scaping and each one has its own sculpture. All sculptures change in perspective; if you have the passenger advantage you can catch it.
This is one of the rotaries on our way to the river walk. I think it beats the heck out of a stoplight. We're headed to a little hiking and a little throwing stones in the river.
This rounder is adorned with a bronze sculpture of a soldier. I think what saddens me is that at home I have traffic signals by light and here it's managed by art that is ignored.
My grandsons know this rounder as the "flaming chicken." I'd have to say they are tough critics. That they even know this rounder is an "applause all around" for the artist.
I realized when I snagged this shot that it 's time for me to get a new purse camera. I drove onto the rounder by the time the shutter closed. There's a lot of technology between my four-year-old camera and now. The other photos I took as passenger with a DSLR.
Why I drove seven hours to Bend - four grand-
children - and why it was worth the seven-hour one day drive.
