This Gallery is from the Oregon Alps, where the number of people is limited...the pride and reverence for the land is unlimited!!  This is the area of Huntington to Richland , home of  "Pink Reflections on Brownlee Dam" , " Paradise " Valley, "Troy" ,  Imnaha  (near "Buttercups at Fence Creek"), "Enterprise",  Minam...sparcely populated small towns with VERY large landscapes!
       During spring there are "Balsam Hills at Troy"  which offset the winter's "Wallowa Mountains Snow".  The local name "Hurricane Creek Canyon" characterizes the area with words...the need for a "Snow Fence" paints just as clear a picture with objects! 
       Formed in the last ice age Wallowa Lake is a glacial dam that is rugged when "Frozen Wallowa Lake"   can be walked on...or gentle enough to paraglide  "Lake Wallowa Summer""Chief Joseph",  guardian of this Nez Perce summer home, tried desperately to secure his people's right to enjoy this unique terrain...first with treaty...then as "Thunder Rolling in the Mountains", his Indian name.
       You will be stunned by the similarity of the Wallowa Mountains photographs to pictures of the Swiss Alps when you travel "Prairie Creek Road" and see the granite face of  "The Wallowas" in all their splendor.  Guaranteed!!
