Oregons Parched Corner
Mike Skinner fills water troughs for cattle with a truck on June 27, 2013 in Jordan Valley, Ore. Cows can drink about about 30 gallons of water a day. Firefighters are nervous, and ranchers and farmers are hurting as far southeastern Oregon goes into a summer of drought. Gov. John Kitzhaber has already issued drought declarations for four counties, including Malheur, a Vermont-size corner of Oregon.
