Travels With Twinkles: The Columbia River Valley and the Dalles

From the bloggers at Travels With Twinkles.

The drive today was mostly on Route 97 north through farmland that was mostly hay fields and cattle range.  It passed through the interesting small farm towns of Shaniko, Kent, Grass Valley and Moro which I found cause to stop at.

The town of Shaniko was a huge Wool center in its day, said to be the largest in the world, with several huge warehouses and a railroad connection.  This area was a major sheep ranching area, but eventually the wool market died and the town died with it becoming almost a ghost town.
