The abandoned Grass Valley Methodist Church in Grass Valley Oregon has to be one of my all-time favorite finds. I was on a spectacular road trip from Spokane to Phoenix using only small highways, no interstates. On my way through north central Oregon on Highway 97, I decided to pull over for some lunch in the small town of Grass Valley. I wasn’t even looking for this little church, I feel like it found me instead. When I pulled up and got out, two deer were also having lunch right in front. After they scurried away, I broke out the camera and began shooting this awesome place.
