Bend is a small city in Oregon on the Deschutes River. The Cascade Mountains, with their lakes and peaks, offer ski resorts and multi-use trails to the west. A trail leads up Pilot Butte, an extinct volcano, from town. The High Desert Museum, in the south, features history and live wildlife displays as well as a focus on the local climate. Stairs lead into the Lava River Cave, a massive lava tube, at the Newberry National Volcanic Monument.
