Thursday Tours: Galentine’s Day

In preparation for February 14th, we are bringing you two Thursday Tours themed for celebrating love! Personally, I’ll be spending the day hitting the ski slopes in Bend with some of my favorite people. Why not share the love, am I right? Like why not celebrate with your favorite lady friend?!
