Wallowas One of Oregon's Seven Wonders
Spring is arriving! Visitors and locals alike will tell you this is the prime time to see the Wallowas. Close your eyes just for a moment and you will see spring in the Wallowas – raptors soaring above the rolling grassland of the Zumwalt Prairie, the snow covered peaks of the Eagle Cap Wilderness and the spring green of the rugged Hells Canyon area. You might even smell spring wildflowers and the native bunchgrass of the prairie.
Yes, the snow is melting and the streams are swelling. It's time to think about casting your 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.
Be sure to save time to shop, dine, and stroll through local museums and galleries. The unique village towns here are a mix of pioneer culture, Nez Perce heritage, world class bronze sculptures and a blast of western art. The Main Street Art Walk illustrates why Joseph Oregon is viewed as world class to art lovers.
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.
Don’t forget your hiking boots and grab your binoculars! The Wallowa Mountains and Hells Canyon have a near limitless playground for outdoor recreation. If you would like a visitor packet for Wallowa Lake, Joseph, Enterprise and the greater area click here.
