When most people think of Oregon, they are likely to picture the rainy green landscape between the Cascade mountain range and the Pacific Ocean. But if you cross the mountains into Central and Eastern Oregon, you run into a very different landscape, where there is far less rain, and the juniper is king of the trees. This episode of Rise When the Rooster Crows is titled Juniper Sunrise. We’ll head east over the Cascades for songs and tunes of juniper, quail, deer, pines, cowboys, coyotes and more.
