Visit the Wallowas! One of Oregons 7 Wonders
Leave the fast pace and fenced-in views of urban America and wake up to the beauty of winter in the Wallowas! Fall has been incredible this past month with the scatter of golden Tamaracks across the backcountry and the feel of the crisp air letting us know the season is changing. The chill in the breeze will soon bring the first powder blanket of snow over the back country of the Wallowas – the look and feel will again be wild and adventurous.
Our wilderness backdrop is perfect for a day of snow shoeing. For the more spirited Nordic skier or snow mobile enthusiasts, hit the mountains at the Salt Creek Sno-Park. The cold days are made easier at the Sno-Park with a warming hut, easy parking, and restrooms. The Wallowas is where you’ll find the solitude and adventure every winter spirit craves. Be sure to get January 20-23rd on your 2016 calendar for the Eagle Cap Extreme Sled Dog Race. This is Oregon’s only Iditarod and Yukon Quest Qualifier!
After a day in the mountains, return to your cabin for a quiet retreat and relax in front of a warm, crackling fire with that special someone or your family, or that group of fun-loving friends you just spent the day exploring the wilds of the backcountry. There are a plethora of village gift shops, galleries, pubs, and restaurants open for you to experience the flavor of Wallowa County.
