Jun 1, 2015 - Highway 395 Drive

Sunday we took a drive up Hwy 395 (actually I should say down 395) we started our drive south of Pendleton. It was one of those days where it was time just to get out & take in some views. We drove as far as Canyon City & then turned around & headed back to Pendleton (some 265 + miles round trip).

This morning we got 10 gallons of gas at Valley Falls. It cost $2.89 a gallon. We decided the owner was greedy when we later filled up in the town of John Day, OR, for $ 2.51 per gallon. We drove north on U.S. 395 passing Abert Rim on our right and the very blue Abert Lake on our left. We passed beautiful scenery of canyons, broad vistas of hayfields with ranches nestled in the valleys, pine forests, alkaline dry lakebeds and desert sagebrush. We think US highway 395 has some of the most beautiful scenery of roads in the U.S. It is...
