As you head East of town, you pass through rolling hills, full of cattle, sheep and crops (mostly wheat around here). This time of year is the rare few months that they are green! It's my favorite season here.
As you approach the Blue Mountains, the hills get steeper, and trees start growing.
Here's the Umatilla River.
I don't normally put pictures of my kids on my blog, but I just can't resist posting this one.
