Its hard not to be inspired by the beauty routinely encountered along the shores of Mirror Pond. This dammed section of the Deschutes River provides abundant amenity value to the town of Bend, OR.  Along the Eastern shore of the lazy river, running about a half mile, from one side of town center to the other, is Drake Park. Hard to overstate the benefit that open space provides a town.  In the few weeks of my all-too-brief residence, I would routinely head down to Drake Park, with a camera, book, and notepad in my bag and wait for inspiration to strike. It never took long.
