For most travelers Rufus is a blur as they zip by on I-84 at 70+ mph. The small town is about half way between The Dalles and Arlington and provides basic conveniences for travelers. The John Day dam and the John Day river recreation area are nearby. Just across the river is the Mary Hill museum and the replica of Stonehenge built by Sam Hill (also claimed by Biggs Junction). Both of these are interesting stops even if they are in Washington.
