This part of Idaho and Oregon is mostly desert. Boise is the most populated with 600,000 in the area. It even has a Costco, so we stopped and had the $1.50 lunches there.   Vale is the county seat for Malheur County, the only county in Oregon on Mountain Time.  The town is famous for its location on the Oregon Trail and its giant murals done by professional artists. 

The murals illustrate life on the trail in the 1800s. We walked from the Vale Trails campground to town and saw perhaps half of the total 27 murals. There is no diesel for 114 miles to the next, Burns, so we will have to fill up here. The price at the only service station in town is $4.10 per gal. That sets a new record for us.
