The Great Oregon Steam-Up is an annual event in Brooks, Oregon, and has been a tradition in my husband's family for over 10 years. Eric took me on our first date here, and we have been going back every year!
This year we camped out and had a great time getting to know all the exhibitors and vendors there! Most everything is ran by volunteers, and you can really tell the people spend all year getting ready for this big event! It's really a rare thing to see so many generations of people preserving Oregon's and Early American history.
