The more I read about Oregon, the more I fall in love with the state. I'm particularly intrigued by Eastern Oregon--the remote, sparsely populated, high-desert region. A couple of things recently on the radar are The Painted Hills (almost too much to be believed) and the Diamond Loop Tour Route. This morning's research led me to an excellent resource--I've already signed up for the Travel Oregon newsletter.
To read more about the Diamond Loop Tour, which includes the Pete French Round Barn, the Diamond Craters, Steens Mountain, Kiger Mustangs Viewing area and the Malheur Wildlife Refuge, click here.
There is only one hotel on the loop, which pretty much is 'it' in terms of hotels, restaurants in Diamond--well actually, the hotel pretty much IS the town of Diamond. Click here for the Historic Hotel Diamond's website.
