If you've ever headed east on Highway 97 just outside of Madras, you may have seen the Cow Canyon rest area. Well, it just got a facelift and ODOT is proud to announce it's looking better than ever. ODOT Representative Rex Holloway says because it's so far out in the middle of nowhere, vandalism can often be an issue. "It's a brand new facitlity done a lot of work in trying to make it pretty sturdy and at least resistant to vandalism and a lot of kind of innovative features that they've put into the building." Holloway says they've also repaved the area, and he invites you to stop by if you're in the area to check out the new facility. It's right on Highway 97, 20 miles outside of Madras. That route has very few places to stop and rest between there an Biggs Junction on Interstate 84.
