Great Oregon Steam Up

Some new scenery for me for this show: the Pacific Northwest. They seem to be able to grow anything there. I went to this show with Farm Collector Editor Leslie McManus and it seemed like everywhere we drove our mouths were open in awe at all the bounty. Blueberries, cherries, grass seed, flowers, grapes, apples, hops, Christmas trees, wheat and barley and beautiful parks. A lot of the wheat grew on steep hillsides, not like what I’m used to seeing here in Kansas.

The Antique Powerland’s 41st annual Great Oregon Steam Up in Brooks, Oregon runs two weekends in a row. This year featured the 20th annual show for the Antique Caterpillar Machinery Owners Club (ACMOC). Lots of Caterpillars made the trip to the show.
