Mt. Jefferson from Detroit Lake, OR. A few miles away is a great counter culture style resort called Breitenbush Hot Springs. It is often booked for conferences on such things as "hatha yogurt," --- I mean hatha yoga, but other times it is open to travelers. It is good to check in advance. The Radical Fairies, a gay social network, has gatherings there also.
It was open to the public as I passed through the area so I stayed there and relaxed around the hot tubs. Met a lot of nice people including someone who had just been to a conference that my brother had given. My brother lives clear across the country, but it's still a "small world." Soon after meeting the friend of my brother's, a person, I knew, from Bellingham, walked up. He was thinking of moving to Portland.
About 2001 conference I went to at Breitenbush
