New Peg's Bottom is up! Bucolic insanity presides!
Oregon Magazine TM
  August 2003  Volume 3  No 8

 Dog days,they call this time.  The land is dry and quiet.  Wild horses stare at the dusty sun, trout lazily wave their tails in the deepest parts of the pool.   Blackberries reign in the fence rows and quail dance on gravel roads.
