I used to know someone who actually lived in Bonanza. She was always going to send pictures for Small Town Oregon, but never did. When Glennette and I rolled onto main street last month (7/2006) I could see why. We could see little to inspire the soul, much less trigger the camera. They grow alfalfa around Bonanza so most of the conversation is about hay and the water it takes to grow it. There is not enough water to go around so the farmers and the environmentalists fight endlessly over how to allocate the available supply.
