Oregons Parched Corner
This June 27, 2013 photo, Bully Creek Reservoir is visibly low in Vale Ore. 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.
