What a day at Todd Lake in September looks like | Bend, Oregon Photographer

Together with five other Oregon photographers I am starting a lifestyle blogging project entitled “What ___________ looks like,” an idea inspired by a group of photographers out of Montana.  On the third Monday of each month I will fill in the blank with my own word or concept, and link to the next photographer’s blog until the circle is complete.  I hope you take the time to enjoy this monthly photographic journey, and enjoy each of our monthly projects.


What a day at Todd Lake in September looks like…


It was the Saturday after school started and the girls and I were looking for something fun to do, so we called our friend Jane and she suggested we all go to her favorite place and look for frogs.  So off to Todd Lake we went on a frog and tadpole adventure.  The day was absolutely perfect and the company even better.  Blue skies, tadpoles in clear water and frogs jumping abound on the edges of the lake.


We walked around the lake and finally  found the perfect spot to take in the beauty of Todd Lake.  As Jane and I sat in the grass the girls played in the water catching tadpoles, frogs and whatever they could find.  Days like these are ones that remind me of why I love Bend so much.  20 minutes away from my house I can find tranquility, beauty and friendship in the simplest form.  And the gifts that are being passed down to my daughters are immeasurable!  This is what it is all about, the majestic beauty of the outdoors, the simplicity of catching tadpoles and the time I am able to spend with my daughters and a good friend!  Life doesn’t get much better than a day at Todd Lake in September.  If you are ever in Bend or have not experienced Todd Lake you should take the time to go off the beaten path and see the beauty Central Oregon has to offer.

 I hope you enjoyed these little slice into the life at our home, please head over to Alisa Hayes blog and see what she has been up to!
