John Day Valley, Oregon
June 19, 2007.
We are staying at Mountain View Travel Park in Baker
City. $24.79 FHU, shade and a nice enough RV-Park. It must
be a former KOA since they charge extra for everything, $2 extra for
wifi, $2 extra for larger sites, you get the picture.
This was a slow day for us and we got a late start. At first we were
undecided about what we wanted to do but finally settled on heading
out to John Day since we had not been out that way. So John
Day it was. By the way John
Day is the name of a small east Oregon town.

We crossed over a mountain pass (Dixie Pass) on and down into John
Day Valley not far from Prairie
That is Strawberry Mountain in the distance. It is the most prominent
mountain in the Strawberry Mountains.

The mountain to the south is Strawberry Mountain. It was named by
an early homesteader because there were wild strawberries in abundance
on the mountain.

Ok, enough of the Chinese influence on western history. It was time
to leave John Day and head back to Baker
City. The route takes us through beautiful valleys such as
the John Day Valley between John Day
City on US-26.

Irrigation makes these valleys so lush and beautiful.
