Lots of bird paintings on Legends Inn, Junction City


I have stayed in this funky older motel in Junction once before. It was very reasonably priced, clean, allowed my dog and had all these neat bird and other paintings on the outside of each room (about 18-24 inches high)

They were all quite good and of course made me feel at home. The area has excellent birding though not so much with the nasty weather this time.

I asked about them and was told they had hired an artist from out of town to come to do the paintings over a year ago.

None of them were signed which was too bad as this artist is not only a good painter but also knows local flora and fauna.

And inside each room there was a mural painted on one wall, or sometimes extending the scene to the next wall. SeEtta
