I believe the building was a school.
Side note: After riding about 20 miles of gravel out of Fossil, I came upon a "No Trespassing" sign posted by Wilderness Unlimited. The sign was positioned such that it seemed to be claiming the road itself, and threatened arrest for continuing. To be safe, I turned around, but I have my suspicions that is not their road, and they just want to keep the riff raff away. Signs by other property owners along that road were facing in a way that claimed only the land along the road.
The road showed on the map as going through to 19, and it looked like a public road. I have heard that Wilderness Unlimited has a habit of claiming more than they actually own, so I want to check with the Sheriff to see whether the sign is legit.
I think that may have been Buckhorn Lane, then, Or the beginning of Armstrong Canyon Rd.
I went there specifically looking for access to the John Day River, as Armstrong heads right to river's edge.
I saw the same damn sign, paused, revved my motor, went forward,,,,,but stopped and turned around also.
I felt the same way, it didn't look right, but the sign was well posted and it delivered a clear message.
The John Day is a "Wild & Scenic River" through that area and even River navigation is by permit only, I understand.
But still, I musta blew right past that school
