Hi All, This is my first post here. My wife and I went on an overnight trip about 8 years ago to the Dalles. We drove to Shaniko and some other areas nearby. I have a picture of an abandoned homestead (possibly Grass Valley area HWY 97 or HWY 206 ??) I'm trying to find it again to take more pictures of it. It was right off the main highway down a dirt road. I'm looking south when I snapped the picture. Thanks in advance for any help, Ryan Erlandsenhttp://home.pacifier.com/%7Erwerland/images/Ghost%20Towns/homestead-tiny.jpg

Hi All, I went ghost town exploring with my brother today (Horse Heaven Hills, Ashwood, Antelope) and found my missing homestead from 8-9 years ago. If anyone is interested the place is located just south of Kent Oregon on the right hand side of the road.We spent some time exploring the exterior. Very windy today. Watch for snakes & don't fall into the old cement well. Here is a new photo from today.
