    There are some folks living here who will stop and talk for a few minutes--mostly hay farmers they are. This region has patches of hay farming within mostly desert scrub brush, where cattle graze side by side with antelope.

    The dilapidated ruins of the Anderson General Store are the only commercial remains of Danner's "downtown". This was built by Danish immigrant Jesse Anderson in the 1930's.

    Near Danner is an early bridge from the old ION highway route, and some scene courses of the Owyhee River as it cuts through the desert landscape. There is actually plenty of irrigation water, but the harsh winter climate discourages farming on a more widespread basis.

    The exit for the Danner Loop gravel road is well marked with both a historical sign, and a road sign showing the distances to Rome, OR and Jordan Valley, OR. The gravel road is easy, but will make your vehicle dusty. Big vehicle will be able to find a turn-around down at the Charbonneau burial site, or in one of the hay farmer ranch equipment turn basins. At the junction for the Danner Loop, there's also a historical marker describing the efforts to farm the region more extensively.
