The John Day River snakes through some of the most beautiful terrain I have seen in Oregon, and for that matter the world, including: Sheep Rock and my personal favorite, Cottonwood Canyon. It is the longest undammed river in Oregon and has the state's largest wild fish run of Chinook Salmon in the spring and Steelhead in the summer. Between the 1840's and 1860's thousands of immigrants made their way to a new home by crossing the river as a part of the Oregon Trail. Everytime I visit a part of this river I truly feel like I've been transported to the past and feel like I am exploring unchartered territory as a pioneer. Also, this is one of the darkest areas in the state and the amount of stars you see here will make your jaw drop in wonder. The bright star in the top right is Jupiter :)
