It is claimed that the sun always shines in this beautiful valley.
Grave Creek Covered Bridge 14 mi. N of Grants Pass, (at exit 71). This is one of the few covered bridges in Southern Oregon and is the only one that can be viewed from Highway 5 anywhere along the route. Though it is closed to cars, you can walk across. It was here, with puffy white cottonwood floating lazily in the air around me, that I chatted with several fellow Californians who shared a road-war story regarding some Oregonians they crossed paths with who disliked Californians. Unfortunately, pockets of this prejudice still exist, but fortunately, they are becoming more rare.
