Dufur Threshing Bee

For the first time for me, and the second year for my shooting friend Judy Neill, we attended the Dufur Threshing Bee last Saturday in Dufur, Oregon.  Dufur is a small farming community south of The Dalles, OR on highway 197.  They get together every year and people from all over the country come to enjoy the old time way of harvesting grain.  It was a grand time with plenty of photo ops throughout the day.  Judy and I both took over 500 photos each!  They have a parade, barbecues, things to sell, live music, demonstrations of tyre setting, threshing, shocking, plowing, old tractor pulling, old car show and many other things going on.  It is a wonderful way to spend a weekend enjoying sights and sounds of a wonderful era. Following are a few photos from the Dufur Threshing Bee.  Hope you enjoy!
