Cheeseburger at 7,500 feet on Mt. Bachelor, Oregon

Mt. Bachelor offers a unique summer dining experience that they call Sunset Dinners. My folks were visiting for the 4th of July weekend so we decided to give it a try. It is definatley not a burger joint and the menu is good but also on the expensive side. Of course they had a burger on the menu and I couldn't resist. I was pleasantly surprised! It was a hand patted Angus beef burger with a home made bun and it was quite good. It was $12.95 for the burger and fries which was OK considering the burger comes with an amzaing view! I don't think I will make the drive to the Mt. Bachelor parking lot and then take the Pine Martin lift to 7,500 feet just for this burger but the whole experience is what it is about and overall I was satisfied. They have a nice happy hour with amazing views of the Central Cascades and the chairlift ride is incredibly scenic. Check it out if you are ever in the Bend area in the summer.
