A Visit to Friend


Friend, Oregon lies east of Mt. Hood where the lower slopes of the Cascade Mountains transition to wheat fields.

At one time it was large enough to support a one-room school which still stands. As you can likely guess, it used to be a “railroad town”.

Now Friend is essentially a ghost town. But, the area remains a truly pleasant place to visit on a sunny autumn day.
