Retired logger in Pilot Rock, Oregon, United States of America Now that I have time of my own, I find I am still drawn to the woods where I worked most of my life. Photography is a great hobby and memory saver. Many of the old houses and locations have an historical value and will not be around forever. It is my intention to save as much of the memory of Umatilla county and the Umatilla National Forest as I can. Photographers deal in things which are continually vanishing and when they have vanished there is no contrivance on earth which can make them come back again. Henri Cartier Bresson Thanks to everyone for sharing locations and memories.

Hi Pat, There really isn't anyone left that would be "concerned" if you were to wander about. It is all open range. Last time I was there, there was a sign telling me that the fire roads were off limits and I wasn't supposed to drive on my own land! I went nearly catatonic with laughter when I saw the speed limit signs on Pearson Creek Road. Some more interesting (to someone I guess) bits of "history." Colonel Raley owned a very large chunk of the area at one time (circa 1900) including all of Granite Meadows. Some of it he sold. Much was "donated" to become part of the original Umatilla National Forest ("Can't do anything with it except pay taxes"). Raley was a Colonel in the Calvary, fought in the Indian wars, attended the University of Organ, was a State Senator and attorney in Pendleton. His son (Roy, my great uncle) was the founder and 1st president of the Pendleton Roundup. Elk were not indigenous to the Blue Mountains. They were transplanted circa 1910 from Montana. My grandfather Hurst's (married the Colonel's youngest daughter) family homesteaded outside of Milton Freewater (Basket Mountain). He was childhood best friends with Clyde Harris (of Harris Pine Mills). In addition to hunting in the general Ukiah area, Clyde had given my grandfather a cabin on Blalock Mountain (between north and south fork of the Walla Walla River). At the time (before Clyde had donated the mills) Blalock Mountain was essentially a private hunting reserve. Someday I suppose I should write a book! Cheers!!
