Our Wild West Tour 2022 to Condon and the Fossil Beds & Painted Hills of Eastern Oregon turned out to be a great success. It is time to schedule another great adventure.

                                                    Wild West Tour 2023

Come join us on a spring weekend tour of the Wild West of Southeastern Oregon.  We will be spending two nights in 
Burns, located in the vast high desert of Southeast Oregon.  This is the far outpost of Southeast Oregon that few people have had the opportunity to explore. Burns is a friendly “Cow Poke” town with a lot of heritage. It also has plenty of outdoor activities. After all, Burns is near Steens Mountain, Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, Crystal Crane Hot Springs, Pete French Round Barn, Alvord Desert and Frenchglen Hotel State Heritage Site.

We will be staying two nights at the Historic Central Hotel, a prohibition themed boutique hotel in the heart of Burns. The original hotel was constructed in 1929 and renovated in 2016. It has 12 guest rooms including 7 Rooms with en-suite bathrooms and the other 5 have “shared access” to the hallway. If you plan to join us, I suggest you make your reservations ASAP.

To book a Room, contact Historic Central Hotel at Provide your name, email address & cell phone number, and they will send you an email with a link to add your credit card info. Mention Mt Hood Miata Club for a 10% discount. When looking at their website you will see that no rooms are available. We have a hold for all rooms at the hotel until February 28, 2023. That is why they show no available rooms. Contact the hotel directly to find out which rooms are available.

There are also several other hotels in Burns including a Best Western and Days Inn. (We don’t have a discount agreement with them).

We are in initial negotiations for providing group dining and may offer a charge for dining opportunities at a later date.

Don’t Procrastinate!  Book Early!

We are also looking at taking an extended tour for returning home. Possibilities include staying at other historic hotels in Prairie City, Condon or Dufur on the way home. Stay tuned, details to follow.
