Hello Jane and Sharon, I wanted to say what a nice job you did on the website it looks great.Nice to see a photo of Lee in all her glory!See you tomorrow! Rachel
Very nice website it seems easy to use. Some thing I would like to see on National special programs like the Native American program what the qualifier and tribe is.We are going to do the Vale walk later this year and have no idea what the qualifier is even after living near Vale for 16 years.Thanks
The qualifier for the Vale walk for the Native American program is the museum the trail passes. Here's some information for you. The Rinehart Stone House was opened on New Year's Day in 1873; was a wayside stop for weary travelers until the turn of the century; and was also a haven for settlers during the Bannock Paiute uprising of 1878. The trail passes the Rinehart Stone House which is currently a historical museum used to exhibit displays of period relics and interpretive exhibits about the Oregon Trail that passed directly through Vale. If you're able to enjoy the museum, you may see history exhibits that include Native American artifacts of the Bannock Indians and/or of the Paiute Indians. One of the many murals in town depicts mountain men camped along the banks of the Malheur River trading furs with Native Americans. The trail crosses the Malheur River and passes through a park which is the site where the wagon trains on the Oregon Trail stopped to rest.I hope this helps provide the information you need. Enjoy your walk in Vale!Sharon
