Destination Oregon: Pendleton Round-Up Volunteers

The 107th Pendleton Round-Up starts next week. The best cowboys and cowgirls in the land will compete in the historic rodeo, which wouldn’t be able to take place if not for the hard work of more than 1,400 volunteers.

For this week’s Destination Oregon, sponsored by Robberson Ford, Dave Jones meets some of those volunteers and gets his own hands a little dirty too.

The Great Outdoors: Fremont’s Mapping of the Oregon Trail

Most of us take road maps for granted. It’s easy for today’s travelers to get a clear map to guide them on their way. However, this was not true with early voyagers who had to make their own maps, and one of the most significant chart-making explorers of the 19th century was Captain John C. Fremont, mapping the way for hundreds of thousands of those who came west over the Oregon Trail.

In this week’s Great Outdoors, sponsored by Camp Abbot Trading Company in Sunriver, Brian Jennings tells the story.

Destination Oregon: Taylor’s Sausage in Cave Junction

The third generation of Taylors moved the family sausage business, Taylor’s Sausage, to Josephine County in Southern Oregon in the 1970’s, and that’s where Central Oregon Daily’s Mackenzie Wilson caught up with the fourth generation of Taylors for this week’s Destination Oregon, sponsored by Robberson Ford.
