Unique Eastern Oregon:
It's a land of great diversity with majestic mountain ranges,
wide open plains, ancient rock formations, and uncounted plant
varieties. Still - visible from pioneer wagons traveling the
Oregon Trail and tell-tale tailings from early mining days
make it a land rich in history. Grant County is the land of
scenic contrast. Things just look different there. The dramatic
geological formations in the John Day Fossils Beds National
Monument are overwhelming.
Sagebrush and juniper dot the slops, the grassy valleys, pine
forest, mountain peaks and many streams, river, lakes, and
hot springs are in this area. Natural beauty and outdoor recreational
opportunities are abundant year-round. There are thousand
of acres of public land that offer backpacking, cross-country
skiing, snow-mobiling, hunting, fishing, horseback riding
or just scenic driving. This part of Oregon is the place for
just about any recreational past time. You can find challenging
golf courses, pristine camp grounds, thrilling rodeos, and
quiet hiking trails all within a short drive of each other.
This area is an ideal spot for hunters, such as game birds,
elk, deer, and even bear can be found throughout the region.
You'll need lots of film to try and capture the magnificence
of Oregon's natural wonders. Such as the deepest river gorge
in the Unites States, even deeper than the Grand Canyon, the
largest geological fault in North America. You'll see beautiful
alpine meadows carpeted in golden wild flowers, miles upon
miles of pine forest infused with sunlight, arid deserts dotted
with sage brush and loaded with wildlife, towering snowcap
mountains and one of the finest ski resorts in the United
States, Mount Bachelor. If Hill Ranch is your final destination,
then the adventures that await you are countless. "There
is just no other place like it!"
