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 Fall in the Wallowas! Fall colors have been incredible this past month in Joseph. The scatter of golden Tamaracks across the backcountry has just started and by late October it will look like a beautiful golden cathedral in the mountains.
Winter wonderland is on its way. 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 in Wallowa County will once again become wild and adventurous.
This is all good! Because it is time to plan for your winter retreat to the Wallowas. We are talking about a day of snow shoeing and backcountry adventure. For the more spirited Nordic skier or snow mobile enthusiasts, hit the mountains at the Salt Creek Sno-Park.
Be sure to mark January 18 – 21st on your 2017 calendar for the Eagle Cap Extreme Sled Dog Race.
After a day in the wilderness, you can return to your cabin for a quiet retreat and relax in front of a warm, crackling fire with that special someone, your family, or maybe that group of fun-loving friends you enjoyed all afternoon. There are plenty of village gift shops, galleries, pubs, and restaurants open for you to experience the flavor of Wallowa County.
The Wallowas -- it is a near limitless winter playground to explore. We invite you to visit this very special place and find the solitude and adventure of one of Oregon's favorite 7 Wonders!
