Trying to find a place that is halfway between Portland and Boise, that can accomodate 4 girls isn't easy. As you know, my best friend Becky lives in Boise, so we (Brianne, Shannon, Becky and I) tried to figure out a place halfway for us to meet. Somehow we settled on a TINY town called Dayville, OR, just west of John Day. There is pretty much nothing there but a tiny cafe and a tiny post office. Luckily there is a small place with 3 little rentals attached to the back of the post office, so this is where we stayed. I didn't get any pictures of the place, and now I am wishing we had! It was quite an adventure, but we had a great time cooking and being together. We played did a LOT of madlibs and watched Labyrinth, since Shannon had never seen it! We also took a day trip to the John Day Fossil Bed National Monument-both the Sheep Rock unit and the Painted Hills. Eastern Oregon is so beautiful!
Brianne scoping out Sheep Rock
The inside of the visitors center had lots of awesome fossils, but really weird paintings of prehistoric times. Here is a prehistoric Brianne and a prehistoric Becky.
The Painted Hills...
And one last one of Lucy riding a chihuahua sized trike. The trike was in the funny place we stayed :)
And that's it for Dayville!
