I didn't realize it had been so long between posts, but I've been "landscaping" again. This time, I've photographed some areas in the county where I grew up. It adjoins the county where I have lived for 45 years---and I have no idea where those years have gone!
Wallowa County has been known as "The Little Switzerland of America," although I haven't heard that term in a long while. The high Wallowa Mountains, also known as the Eagle Caps, are impressive any time of year. After the first snow, however, they get special recognition.
