I grew up in the Pacific Northwest and have lived here pretty much all my life except for a couple of years in China and a few months in western New York. This is my home. There's no other place that I'd rather live. In Cheryl's Northwest, I'll share some of my favorite places with you.
Eastern Oregon isn’t all
sagebrush and grain fields. It’s lush forests and bubbling rivers such as can
be found in the Ukiah-Dale Scenic Corridor.
This scenic drive takes
motorists through forests ponderosa pine, Douglas fir and larch. This section
of U.S. Highway395, which stretches from Canada to Mexico, is curvy as it goes
through the mountains, alongside the north fork of the John Day River. Near the
Ukiah end of the corridor, there’s a 27-site campground.
The river offers excellent
fishing for trout, salmon and steelhead, while a nearby wildlife area offers
plenty of opportunity for elk hunters.
The corridor is administered
by the Oregon Department of Parks.
