THESE AREA ATTRACTIONS ARE AWAITING YOU

THINGS TO DO WHILE STAYING AT STANG MANOR

The Forest is located in the Northeastern part of Oregon and the Southeastern portion of Washington. The place got its name from the Indian words that mean "water rippling over sand." In 1805 the explorers Lewis and Clark came past this land on their Colombia River Voyage to the Pacific Ocean.

Gold was also discovered in the forest in 1851 which started the settlement in the North Fork Day River area. From that period of time over $10 million in both gold and silver were found there. Some claims are actually still being mined today.

The Umatilla National Forest is located at the elevation of 5000 feet. This means that sometimes the weather isn't always as sunny and clear as where you are at. Even though it can get pretty cold up in the mountains there is so much to do and you can make the memories of a lifetime. Make sure that you take a look at the forest and road conditions before you head up the mountain as weather conditions can change without any type of warning.
