As we continue our drive along Hwy 7, we have mostly bald mountains, a green, irrigated fertile valley, and the Burnt River.
We gain the little town of Hereford, OR. I stop at a kiosk standing alongside the road and in front of an old, well-cared for building from days gone by; Hereford Union High.
We eventually make it to Unity, a spot in the road, but it does boast it’s own tiny post office and small market. More history here as a historical marker tells of the fight between ranchers and miners for the water that was available.
My curiosity satisfied we backtrack to the turnoff along Hwy 26 that will take us west and will, eventually, take us to John Day.
We climb a bit in elevation and the rolling bald hills give way to forest. This will be a nice respite from the heat that is supposed to hang around for another couple of weeks. I hope you will join us in our next camp! Thanks for stopping by 2Dogs! Hugs, Shawna
