'God's Country'... Sumpter Oregon!

By the late 1900's Sumpter was the largest gold mining town in northeast Oregon. Fire swept thru in 1917 and made a ghost town out of it. Now the city is well known for its year around outdoor activities which still include gold panning. Sumpter supports about 200 residents now and lures people in with big flea markets on major holidays.
