Ghost of Times Past: A Field Trip to Boom Towns of Central Oregon, Sept 25-26

Join Keith May, author of Ghosts of Times Past: A Road Trip of Eastern Oregon Ghost Towns (Sigh Drighed, 1998) for a not-to-missed two-day bus tour of ghost towns of central Oregon. The first day includes stops at the long-forgotten boom towns of Boyd, Dufur, Friend, Shaniko and Antelope. The group lodges in Fossil for the evening, where we’ll meet staff from the Fossil Museum and take in a lecture by Dick Pugh, renowned meteorite scientist from Cascadia Meteorite Lab. The following day, will have a short hike through the spectacular Painted Hills, led by tour guides from the Paleo Lands Institute, an organization dedicated to leading education programs on the geology of eastern Oregon.
