Sliding down the dam outside of Bend (side view)
Last spring break my dad, brother, and I went to Bend to paddle the Deschutes River. After a leasurely paddle down the Tumalo Section of the Deschutes we heard about a 30ft. dam right outside of Bend. So after a little bit of exploring around to find this dam, my brother and I took turns sliding down it. Because the dam flatens out at the bottom I ended up skipping over the flatwater at the bottom. I'd never done anything like this before and it was quite fun.
