Exploring the Earth and Sky of the West

Wallowa Mountains

The Wallowa Mountains of northeastern Oregon are, without a doubt, one of the hidden gems of the west. Excellent long-distance backpacking, relatively few people, and Sierra Nevada-esque granitic peaks combine to. Sadly, most of my trips here occurred before I owned a decent camera, so the photos here don’t really do this spectacular area justice. It is high time for a return trip!
