For the 4th of July weekend I joined CharChar for a trip out east to visit the ghost town of Shaniko; the bone yards of Fossil; and to raft the lovely John Day River. Some snaps from around town:
Old fire truck in Shaniko. There are some great old cars in this little ghost town. A barn full of autos from the early 50s.
The Shaniko Hotel is for sale. The most happening joint is the ice cream shop which is run by Shaniko's mayor
Main Street, Fossil, OR. This is Bob's BBQ and Sourdough shop. Bob also makes killer chocolate vinegar donuts. Mmm.. fresh and made to order
An order of Bob's donuts. Down the street you can dig for Fossils behind the high school.
