But we both shared a commonality in spirit and drive, though 100 years apart, as we both had the determination to live out our wild west dreams on a large plot of land as single females in Central/Eastern Oregon.
After 2 years of living out my little dream near the John Day River, a handsome man came along as I turned 30, and we later married and I followed him back to the west side of the Cascade Mountain Range. (I am now 35 and living on a smaller farm property near the coast with him).
But there were many days and nights I thought of my dear kindred spirit and friend, Alice Day Pratt, and I was inspired to overcome any challenge that arose, knowing that if Alice had done it, I could certainly do it too.
I had an adventure of traveling out along the Crooked River and locating the plot of land Alice Day Pratt Resided on, SE of Prineville, Oregon. And it was only a few weeks later that my opportunity sprung for me to jump onto an old homesteaded piece of land and live out my dream. I have to give thanks to Alice for inspiring me more so to just do it!
