Oregons Parched Corner
Mike Skinner checks out a pond that cattle would normally bed drinking from on his 10,000 acre family ranch 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.
