Bud and Georgina Minton
Bud and Georgina met at Denio Junction, both having worked on neighboring ranches in Denio. Eventually, they both worked on the same ranch and were blessed with a son, Gary Russel.
The couple eventually left the ranch and Bud went to work for the State Highway Department. A year later Denio Junction was closed by the former owner, Lee Greenstreet, after 30+ years.
Recognizing that the community of Denio was in great need of the services that the Junction had provided, Bud and Georgina decided to reopen it in 2015.
Married on the front lawn of the Junction, the Mintos now offer Motel, Gas, Restaurant, Bar and Grocery services.
