Canyon City

Gold rush fever hit Oregon in the 1860s, and Canyon City, just south of John Day, felt the heat.

The remaining riches of the Strawberry Mountain Wilderness, the Malheur National Forest and the John Day River lure campers, hikers, fishermen and cross-country skiers. Check out a treasure of natural history at the Thomas Condon Paleontology Center and the Sheep Rock Unit of the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument.
