About KMTR TV All in a Day's Drive: Folks stand by Brownsville(Photo Gallery)(Video)
It was the home of some of Oregon's first settlers and it was the setting for the movie "Stand By Me."

But people who still call Brownsville home say the town is always welcoming to visitors.

People who visit Brownsville may appreciate the rich history or the quiet streets.

About KMTR TV Don't miss Alsea: 'It'd just take a blink and you'd be through it'(Photo Gallery)(Video)
As you head west on highway 34 from Corvallis to the coast, it's easy to miss the town of Alsea.

You'd have to pay close attention to even find it on the map.

But this small town has plenty of charm.

Much like a Robert Frost poem, Highway 34 is indeed the road less traveled.

About KMTR TV All in a Day's Drive: Best weather in decade on tap for 42nd Daffodil Drive(Photo Gallery)(Video)
With a sunny weekend expected in the Willamette Valley, there'll be a bouquet of activity happening north of Eugene.

Many people will be heading to Junction City for the 42nd annual Daffodil Drive.

Little yellow beacons are blooming along Ferguson Road west of Junction City, just in time for organizers to open up Long Tom Grange for this weekend's Daffodil Drive.

“All of the flowers coming up, the daffodils in bloom, it's a great time to remember it's a chance to get out and enjoy the outdoors,” Jolene Thomson said. Thomson works for Guaranty RV in Junction City.

“Probably the best daffodil festival - as far as weather goes - we've had in the last ten years,” Danuta Pfeiffer said. Pfeiffer is organizing this year’s drive.

About KMTR TV Snow on the mountain, shovels in Sisters(Photo Gallery)(Video)
After a mostly dry winter, late season snow has more people returning to the Cascades to enjoy the final few weeks of winter.

And Sisters is a small mountain town with big charm.

Heavy snow is a welcome sign in the Cascades.

The elusive snowfall has been a late arrival this season.

“It was just killing us, from November, almost through the end of January, the snow finally showed up and it's just been fantastic ever since,” skier Erik Hoefer said. Hoefer drove from Stayton to ski at Hoodoo.

After mammoth-sized snowfall in February, it's ski season on the mountain, but construction season in the town of Sisters. The town is undergoing a project to repave Highway 20.

About KMTR TV Joel in Garden: How to build tater towers(Video)
Now is a good time of year for gardeners to start burying potatoes.

No matter how big your growing space is, you can quickly run out of room if you try burying them all.

That’s why you can build your own potato towers that your plants can climb.
