V - Vista Butte Is located in Deschutes County. As a Nordic ski trail or snowshoe trail, it is a pretty steep slog uphill to a beautiful view point of the cascade Mountains

Santiam Wagon Road. The old wagon road from Sisters to Albany was used primarily for freight and cattle, and was in use from about 1865 to the 1930s. It is still visible in many locations in Central Oregon and there are a couple areas where one can hikes along the old road.

Someday, I hope to have a bite of cinnamon roll again. They were one of my grandma's specialties. And I have never tasted them as good as hers. I do know how she made them, but it is a lot of work. I have been working on apple dessert recipes. Less calories more nutrition. I have a couple printed that I want to try before thanksgiving.

Rainier, Oregon. I am only mentioning this again because of the train track that runs down the middle of main street is getting an overhaul. They have expanded the waterfront park and now have a kayak launch and a pretty decent river walk. www.cityofrainier.com/?view=citypark

M - McCormick Park in St. Helens. Where I walk Buds. I know I have used that one before, but it has a creek running through it, hiking trails, dog park, BMX race track, skate park, Veterans park, playground, disk golf AND the library right next to it. It used to have camping till the homeless found it and took over. Sadly the camping is now closed.

Janey I loved hearing about your reverse Keno! Very fun and original, and a lot more dollars will change hands with your method.

L - La Conte Crater. We used to hike to this crater every summer. It is off the trail near wickiup Plain. Now it is a little too difficult for us to hike, but I still remember the views and the beauty.

Cathy, we have an Ixtapa Restaurant close in Hermiston. They have wonderful service, food & drink there.

Alison, I love Jacksonville, the buildings and surrounding areas.

K - I say Keno.

Do you play?

We used to play when we went out to eat. We even one a couple of times. Once we won so much we had to drive to Salem to get the winnings. I believe it was 7 out of 8 for 1700 dollars. When we had to quit working after injuries we stopped playing "the Oregon way".
Now we play reverse Keno. We still have the same eight numbers, and pay ourselves a dollar every time we are watching and they do not hit. The most we've "lost" is $150 a couple of times. Our game is not as exciting for sure, it works for us.

Janey, I loved going to the fossil beds when my nephew was a younger (he was really into fossils). It is still a fun experience.

And I have fond memories of hiking on the the greenway when I lived in Ashland (30 years ago!)

H - High Desert Museum. This is a world class museum here in Bend. If you are in Bend, be sure to visit it! I love the living history, the birds of prey and otter shows, and the outdoor exhibits.

G - Greenway - Bear Creek

bearcreekgreenway.com/

Spent many hours on this great trail between Medford and Ashland. Dave worked to tile the Federal Court house bathrooms in Medford and at the time, I did not have a security clearance and could not work. Back then, we always had our dog, Tank, with us. After dropping Dave to work, Tank and I would get a shade spot in Hawthorne park there in Medford. From there we'd set out to walk the greenway to Ashland dog park. We'd meet back at the park for a picnic with Dave and then back we'd go. It is a great memory of both special times with Tank and of the beautiful areas on the trail.

F - Fossil Beds behind Wheeler High School, Fossil, Oregon

This is a review from 2013 Yelp experience ~

Totally awesome for kids and adults.
The town of Fossil is the nicest, chillest place, I swear.
I was kind of scared driving into this little town in the middle of no where, but every single person I encountered went above and beyond to be helpful.
I kind of secretly wanted to move there. Dogs in the back of pick ups, amazing views, an 800 sf library/post office/city office:) with one lady who does it all (and she was sooo nice!)

ANYWAY, I am mostly writing this review b/c when I was trying to find out if the fossil beds were open year round I came up empty handed. No one answered any of the phone numbers I found for Wheeler High school or the town of Fossil.
So folks, Here's the 411,It seems like the fossil beds are always open!!!!There is a drop box for fossil hunting payment and an un manned tool shed where you can borrow tools. The walk from the parking lot behind the high school to the actual fossil bed is only about 100ft or 200ft.
The only bathroom I could find was in the grocery store (which is must if you go to fossil, just for the taxidermy alone!!!)
Happy Hunting! emoticon

Oh No! I did Z before Y. Okay here are both of them:

Y: Yocum Falls is located on Camp Creek near Mt. Hood Ski bowl, at the start of the trail to Mirror Lake. I hiked that trail over 30 years ago, when I lived in Portland.

Z - Zumwalt Prairie is a grassland and wildflower preserve near Imnaha (Nature Conservancy purchased much of the prairie; and a portion has been designated National Natural Landmark). I have not visited Zumwalt prairie, but I would love to see it.

Interesting to note, the 16 story bar has incredible views for a while - until the County courthouse - 17 stories - is complete.

Swanky is the word my Mom would use. At any rate, checked out their menu. If ever, I'd go for the fondue and an "Old Cowboy"?!!!

Wow Cathy I didn't know about the underground tour of Astoria, I will have to take the tour the next time I visit Astoria. (I did go on the Pendleton underground tour, which was very interesting and fun)

V - Vanport was an industrial city north of Portland that was important for building ships during WW II. It also had a much larger minority population that the rest of Oregon. Vanport was destroyed by a flood in 1948. OPB had a very interesting documentary about Vanport.

Loved the M&F story. Such a cool memory!

N - Niagra Park - Alison reminded me of this nice park on Hwy 22 on the way to Detroit Lake.

Dad worked for the Marion County Parks Department. This was his favorite park, knowing him, it was probably the peace and quiet (except for the river) that he loved most.

M - More M&F

I remembered they had sold out. I had forgotten it was Macy's. Luckily, I got the kids in there in the 80s while we lived in Portland and they got to ride the overhead monorail Christmas train. Anyway that is what they tell me. I remember going and fighting crowds. Glad I withstood the overwhelming crowds of people enough for them to have that memory.

Both my sister and daughter worked there, both in the shoe department. In the late 1950s, I remember standing on the porch and watching for her bus. I was about four at the time. As soon as it pulled up to the curb, I was given permission to fly down the block. Such good memories of her swooping me up and looking at me like the best thing in the world. She actually still does that periodically. That woman knows how to love.

Thanks for some wonderful memories. Here is a little of same and some different information about the future of the building.

PS: They had live mannequins when I was a kid. I remember trying to decide if they were real or not. Mom told me it wasn't polite to stare and dragged me away. They were swaying slightly and blinked. So I know they were real. LOL

L - Lavalands visitor center, south of Bend is part of Newberry National Monument. I like the exhibit explaining the volcanic features that surround us, and the trails that wind through fields of lava, pointing out the various features. It is also nice to take the bus up to the top of lava Butte. The views are great. When the visitor center is closed, hiking up Lava Butte is a nice uphill hike.

KISN Radio. I was so main stream. We laid out in the yard on our beach towels with little teeny transistors that sounded so tinny. Great fun and we were so cool. Felt quite daring late on summer evenings to actually catch the Wolfman Jack program blasting from Mexico.

K - KINK FM 101.9


This was my go to station from young adulthood until leaving Salem in my mid 30's.

Back in the day they had such things as Sunday night "Dr. Demento Show" and evening Jazz hour.

One of their claim's to fame was never repeating music in a 24 period.

Imagine my delight, as I now live stream KINK via my computer. To me, still a unique and fun station.

Elk Lake in the Central Oregon Cascades is popular for sailboats and kayaks. During the summer, they have evening concerts overlooking the lake. In the winter, you can take a snocat in and cross country ski -- but it is more popular with snowmobilers.

Beaverton Bowl - was on Farmington Road.

So many happy childhood memories there filling up a sheet ( think there were 16? games on a sheet ). Kept me out of my favorite Aunt Lois' hair while she worked the snack bar and front desk. Uncle Mark worked in the back, on the lanes and in the trophy shop. They made a fine life of it - owning a bowling alley. emoticon

Yapoah Crater, Deschutes National Forest, is about 6700 feet high. The word Yapoah means isolated hill in Native American language (for one of the tribes), and Yapoah was also the original name for Skinner Butte in Eugene. I've hiked by the crater; it is off the Pacific Crest trail.

re: Winston....Haven't they been open longer than that. I have a polaroid photo of my daughter holding a cheetah and petting it. I thought she was about seven or eight years old.

Here is a nugget I copied for X from www.beachconnection.net

The X Files. That huge '90s phenomenon used Oregon locations for the stories periodically during its run, but always using fictional names.

X Files started things off in an Oregon forest, which could've been more inland Ė or it could've been on the coastline. Either way, the setting for the pilot episode of X Files was the fictional Collum National Forest in Oregon. Being filmed in British Columbia, it easily looked like a coast range forest in the Beaver state.

Winston Oregon Wildlife Safari

Just read that the park has been going for over 38 years. It seems we must have visited shortly after they opened. It was a very memorable experience. One and only time to see a hippo urinate, imagine a full blast fire hydrant! By the end of the tour we narrowly escaped having giraffes eat nails out of the back of our pick-up and had a camel spit on our window to give us our royal send off. Fun times.

Valley Falls is located in Lake County at the junction of US Hwy 395 and State Highway 31.It is tiny, but the scenery is beautiful. Abert Rim is very dramatic as it rises above Valley Falls. Apparently there actually is a small waterfall about a mile away.

From Oregon Park brochure:
"It's even more natural the farther east you go at Rooster Rock (where you'll find one of Oregon's two designated clothing optional beaches). By design, the clothing optional beach area is completely separate and not visible from the clothing-required area of the large park. The two areas coexist in harmony."

P - Paramount Theatre Portland now - fittingly, "Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall".

interesting fact- The theater cost $500,000 to build in 1928.[16] As of October 2006, "The Schnitz" was assessed by Multnomah County at more than $32 million

Personally, my times at the Paramount were during the concert years. Have enjoyed, Maria Muldaur, Kris Kristofferson (minus Rita Coolidge emoticon ) and Ms. Bonnie Raitt 3x there. Good times.

O - Oregon Vortex.
http://www.oregonvortex.com/

Last time I went there I got quite bad vertigo the closer I got to the center and it decreased the farther I got away. I don't remember it doing that when I was younger. Nothing like having a few crystals floating around in your head. Something is certainly out of kilter there. Loved it anyway. Lots of interesting history and mystery. www.oregonvortex.com/
