    Default Guided Tour of Ghost Towns in Oregon

    The Dill Pickle Club of Portland has a guided tour of several Ghost Towns this weekend.

    They still have a few spots open! I'll be on the tour (but not guiding,) will take lots of pictures though and blogging on the road if possible.

    I'm planning on taking tons of pictures. Got an extra memory card, and I'll take the laptop along to download the pictures.

    Have a blast and if you are able to get on the road South East of town, take pics of it too...that thing is so full of switchbacks that it's a one of a kind...except for that one road in San Francisco. (LOL)

    Just got back. The bus was only able to stop in Shaniko for any length of time. I was able to get pictures of Boyd and Antelope from the bus. We passed Bakeoven so fast (plus there wasn't a place to pull the bus off the road,) that I didn't get any pictures of it.

    We also passed through Clarno and another town on the road between Fossil and Mitchell who's name escapes me (only a well maintained school house remains.)

    I'll post pictures as soon as I get a bit of sleep and can edit the pictures. I also got quite a few of Fossil, and some great landscapes of the Painted Hills.
