The EOU campus in La Grande, OR is a beautiful location. The campus sits on a hill. There's a mix of old traditional buildings and ones that are more modern. The grounds are planted with a beautiful combination of trees and other plantings; fall season is especially beautiful. I was delivering some canvases to the administration building (Inlow Hall) and then spent 10 minutes at that corner of the campus. It is one of my favorite photo locations, particularly in the fall.
At the top of steep 8th street, now open only to foot traffic, one can look north to Mt. Emily, the 6000 ft peak in the Blue Mountains that border the Grande Ronde Valley.
