What really happens during Spring Break?

Josh Ewings, 16-year-old freshman at Dayville High School, was working on his spring break for the Long Box Ranch dragging fields to make money for the prom. "I love it here, it can't get any better than this," Josh said as he jumped back on his tractor to continue his 9- to 10-hour shift.

GRANT COUNTY - With Spring Break here and gone, you have to wonder, what exactly did our young kids do with all that time on their hands?

While some kids left home to visit grandparents or took a family trip to the coast, many youths stayed in the area and found ways to keep themselves entertained in Grant County.

Kids from around the county were spotted hanging out at the park in Long Creek, watching baseball games in rain and windstorms, hanging out at friends' houses and cruisin' the main strip in John Day.

The Eagle's own Marissa Allen ventured out around the county in search of these elusive kids at play or work. She had a hard time tracking people down - it seems many were away or stayed indoors due to the unpredictable, Eastern Oregon spring weather.

More photos of what she encountered are available below.
