Postcards from Highway 161

California 161 is also known as State Line Road. That's because it roughly parallels the border between Oregon and California.

The border is more than just a symbolic division. Traveling west to east, on the right California has a natural, wild look. As you might expect from a National Wildlife Refuge. On the left in Oregon, marshes are being irrigated and turned into hay and alfalfa.

The smooth pavement is a nice surprise; even though it's beautiful this road doesn't carry much traffic.
This California parcel is for sale; it's described as "Lakefront Property".

Many happy birds just out of sight, beyond the reeds.

Those poor old Oregon dirt farmers...
Just off 161 on Hill Road, a Japanese American internment camp. A total surprise...
