Yesterday we celebrated our 41st wedding anniversary at the Black Butte Ranch near Sisters, Oregon.
We love this place because of the spectacular views of the mountains, lakes, and forests. We’ve stayed here many times and, when our kids were younger, would take them horseback riding along the many trails.
The restaurant at Black Butte is wonderful – great views, great food, and a wonderful and friendly staff.
Before dinner, we have our favorite drinks, non-alcoholic bloody marys. Here they are second only to the ones served at Timberline Lodge at Mount Hood.
After our drinks, we shared a steak dinner. (We share dinners because most restaurants serve way too much food, and we want to maintain our svelte figures. Even after splitting the steak, even that was too much for both of us, and we took some home.
We topped off the evening with a terrific dessert. Warm chocolate cake and ice cream.
