Flora is no more

Flora is no more

 

Flora is one of many Eastern Oregon ghost towns. It sits more than a thousand feet above a steep river valley on a rolling prairie. Despite its vapidness, visitors glean a rich history on the short drive through.

I arrived in Flora after driving the steep canyon walls from the Grand Ronde below, despite myriad signs against traveling that route. Coming in this side, instead of from Highway 3–along the much deeper (2,400 foot) Joseph Creek Canyon–a traveler finds himself first passing the graveyard. Here’s a quick journey through town. Enjoy the set from my visit.
