PENDLETON (1,070 alt., 6,621 pop.), seat of Umatilla County
and home of the famous Pendleton Round-Up, is the trading center
for an extensive grain, sheep, and cattle area. Curving between folded
hills, the Umatilla River flows through the city, dividing it into two
unequal sections. Often beaver and muskrats can be seen playing in
the stream just below the busy city streets. North of the river the hills
rise abruptly from the water's edge, bringing to a quick terminus the
well-paved streets that for a short distance climb the precipitous slopes.
Residences, shadowed by rows of locust trees, overlook the business
district that occupies the flat on the opposite side of the river. The
principal industries are concentrated along the eastern and southern
edge of town. Wheatfields, invisible from the lower levels, stretch in
every direction. Towering flour mills produce 2,000 barrels a day, and
woolen mills manufacture the well-known Pendleton blankets.
A few riders from the ranges and Indians from the reservation may
be seen on the streets of Pendleton at any time of year, but as Round-
Up time approaches the city takes on all the appearance of a typical
cow town of the Old West. Then on the streets the familiar figures
of an almost lost romance appear in picturesque variety. Here they are

nearby Umatilla Reservation, blanketed and moccasined, the bright-
shawled squaws bearing papooses strapped to their backs. Mingled
with them are hawkers of souvenirs and strangers from far and near.
