[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Overlooking the Malheur River between Juntura and Harper, Oregon. The dark reddish rocks are basalt and volcanic in origin. This arid hill country lies within the rain shadow of the Cascade Mts. to their west. Great agricultural practices are enabled by water captured in reservoirs and carried to farms in a system of canals. Without this form of irrigation, nothing would grow in Eastern Oregon. Corn, sugar beets, potatoes, wheat, alfalfa (hay)and onions are the principle agricultural crops. This crop is a cornfield in late Fall..
