Umatilla County, Oregon 1922

CAMAS PRAIRIE

Camas Prairie is a wonderful valley in the Blue Mountains twenty-six miles beyond Pilot Rock. This is the summer range for the livestock of this section and it is commonly referred to as the "Cow Country" by people of these parts.

The principal towns in this valley are Albee and Ukiah, the headquarters for the stockmen during the summer months. Both have receiving stations for the dairy products of the community, which are shipped to creameries in other parts of the county.

This is one of the most scenic sections in the county and it is in this region that big game is hunted. One of the leading summer resorts, Hidaway Springs, is located only a few miles from either of these points.

The citizens of these towns are progressive and the business needs are well taken care of by representative mercantile stores.
