A Different Direction
Although I live in NE Oregon, I'm not in "the corner." Wallowa County, on the other hand, IS in the corner...I grew up there. What we consider the real "corner" of the county is actually to the south...at Wallowa Lake. We always say "up," but I guess south should be "down." Anyway, Wallowa Lake is an absolute jewel tucked up against the amazing Wallowa Mountains aka the Eagle Caps. The Wallowa River comes out of the mountains, runs through the state park, and into the lake. It runs for more than 50 more miles northwest through Wallowa County until it joins the Grande Ronde River on the Wallowa-Union county line. Back to the origin: Wallowa Lake.
