Culver Oregon

Here is a view of the 3 Sisters Mountains. The name was probably originally applied by members of the Methodist Mission in Salem in the early 1840's, and the individual peaks were given the names "Mount Faith", "Mount Hope", and "Mount Charity", beginning from the north.

Culver Oregon
A town of fewer than one thousand people. Nestled in a fertile valley with Haystack Reservoir and the Crooked River National Grasslands to the east, Lake Billy Chinook and the Cove Palisades State Park to the wes
t, Juniper Butte to the south and Round Butte to the north, Culver is home to those who wish to make it theirs.

From the irrigation water dancing across the fields helping the crops to grow -- to the lake below where boats manufactured here are tested -- to the water, sparkling clear and pure from 0pal Springs nearby -- water is the key to the heart of Culver.

So Sunday we took a drive to Culver and Metolius to pick up my Pergo Flooring i bought for $95.00 Which did all of my living room and have enough left to do maybe the motor home living room. Another great find on Craig's list. I think i am addicted now with all the great things i have found.
Well anyway here is a few photos of driving thru Culver. Not much t
here but nice and clean.
We think this is Dill that they are growing there. Not for sure.

Then we came into the big town of Metolius
The community was named for the Metolius River, whose name derives from an Indian term, variously translated as "spawning salmon" and "white fish"
