October is typically celebrated as harvest time with special outdoor events staged before the onslaught of winter. One such community is a lovely city called Sisters that is located in Central Oregon and is the gateway to the Cascade Mountains. Tourists enjoy the many stores exhibiting local and specialized talent, art gallerias ranging from paintings to pottery to photography.
An event that has been held annually for the past 30 years is the Sisters Harvest Faire. Held in downtown Sisters, there are streets blocked off for quality vendors featuring their handcrafted items. People come to enjoy quality handmade items as well as take advantage of the food court and live entertainment. My friend and I journeyed over to Sisters for the day to take in the colorful display of creations in an energetic atmosphere. There is much to be said about Sisters, but that will have to wait until a future post. For a condensed version, Sisters is a western themed community, both charming and unique and lies at the scenic base of the Three Sisters Mountains.
With all the creativity that abounds during Harvest Faire.... God is not be outdone! Our Master Creator painted His own beauty in our drive over to Sisters and on our return to the John Day Valley. Since we left in the early morning hour heading West, this was the view of the eastern sunrise that was behind us. Of course, I had my friend pull her car over, so I could take some shots, several of which I share with you....
