Northeast Oregon is wonderful in the fall. The tamaracks are turning golden, maybe there is a light dusting of snow to provide contrast to Wallowa Lake and the surrounding Wallowa Mountains/Eagle Cap Wilderness, summer crowds have headed home, and end of season sales are often in progress.
There are some great hikes a short walk from our cabin or on the Lake’s east moraine, the Kokanee run is often in progress up the Wallowa River and a driving tour to the Nature Conservancy’s Zumwalt Prairie is a nice way to spend a morning looking for raptors and seeing the prairie recovery in progress. We have been vacationing at Wallowa Lake for almost 40 years.
Whether you want to hike, ﬁsh, shop or just sit at the Lake or a cafe with a coﬀee or beer and enjoy the scenery, we and other club members can provide you a number of ideas.
Meals: We will have a happy hour each evening, one potluck and Joanne and I will host a breakfast and dinner at a cabin we’ve been building for 17 years, nearby.
