Hello there! I'm still sorting through photos from our September trip to eastern Oregon. In my last post I mentioned we took a long walk to see the sights. We skirted the highway and ventured down back roads to get a good feel of it. Paused to say "hello" to a local resident.
Our dogs don't have much experience with large animals, but Wally was very polite.
The photo below was taken on a back road. Heck of a view from the farmhouses we passed along the way. The big D is for Dayville.
These folks love their town and, it's true, their fossils are friendly. Dayville is situated near the John Day fossil beds. I like the signage. We're thinking of getting one of those "drive like your kids live here" signs for our street. They were posted throughout the town.
Heading back to camp... We stopped on the bridge so I could photograph the South Fork of the John Day River, which is the river that runs along camp. You can see why I call this camp a desert oasis.
These plump wild turkeys were in camp every day. This photo was taken from our motorhome window and, of course, they wandered off when I went outside.
Someone would love to chase them.

And this... I found the rock in camp. You're supposed to post it on Facebook and move it to a different location, but I left it for another camper to enjoy.
Its smile is contagious. I hope it worked on you! Have a happy day!
