These images were taken with my Nikon D7000 beater camera and 30
year old, $1,000 35mm f/1.4 manual focus lens. Kinda rainy today so
didn't want to get the good camera wet.

Ritter is an unincorporated community in Grant County, Oregon, United States,
ten miles down the Middle Fork John Day River from U.S. Route 395, between Dale
and Long Creek. At one time the locale was also known as Ritter Hot Springs.

When a post office was established in this locale, it was named for the Rev.
Joseph Ritter, a pioneer Baptist minister of the John Day Valley, on whose ranch
it was situated. The post office was originally near the mineral hot springs there,
formerly known as McDuffee Hot Springs but now known as Ritter Hot Springs. In
1988, the post office had moved to the old schoolhouse across the river. As of
2009, Ritter no longer had its own post office; Ritter's mail is addressed to
Long Creek.

The springs were discovered by William Neal McDuffee, an early-day packer who
traveled between Umatilla and the John Day Valley mines.

A County map will really help in finding these places.
