My cousin, Tammy, and I took off early this morning for Grant County. People who have visited this part of Eastern Oregon call it “God’s County” and I agree. I love driving through the ponderosa pines and seeing the Strawberry Mountains in the distance. As a plus, I had a great visit with my cousin, Carrol, and my cousin Delmas and his wife Mary.
There was much teasing about the city cousin. I offered to help with bringing in the cattle this year until I heard I would have to ride a horse! Yep, they are still bringing the cattle through town and using horses.
