Wallowas One of Oregon's Seven Wonders
Spring is arriving! Visitors and locals alike will tell you this is a prime time to see the Wallowas. Close your eyes for a moment and visualize the beginning of spring. Can you see raptors soaring above the rolling grassland of the Zumwalt, between the snowy peaks of the Eagle Cap Wilderness and the rugged cliffs of Hells Canyon? Can you smell spring wildflowers, the native bunchgrass of the prairie, and feel a fresh breeze blow in from the canyon lands of the Imnaha?
The snow is melting and the streams are swelling. It's time to cast a line into the clear waters of our mountain fed wild and scenic rivers. Challenge yourself to fish for world class steelhead or defy the world record for Kokanee in the deep waters of Wallowa Lake. It's all memorable, it's possible, and as they say in the city - it's all turn-key ready!
Be sure to save time to shop, dine, and stroll through local museums and galleries. Our small village towns are a mix of pioneer culture, Nez Perce heritage, and a blast of western art and world class bronze. The Main Street Art Walk illustrates why Joseph Oregon is viewed as world class in the arts. Yes, locals here are forever boasting on chocolates, coffees, brews and local distilled spirits made in Wallowa County. So please don’t be surprised when you keep finding one-of-a-kind gifts made by our local artisans.
