We left La Grande around 8:30 am Friday morning after Curt of Curt's RV fixed a few last minute items on Shak3. It was a gorgeous morning for a drive after a big rain storm the night before. Everything smelled so clean and fresh. The scenery along 82, which included the Wallowa River, was breathtaking.
We arrived into Enterprise around 10:30. We really like the feel and functionality of this town- 2 hardware stores, a Safeway, 2 Mexican restaurants & a Pub- what else do you need. We got settled in at our campground and then went off to explore the town of Joseph and Lake Wallowa. Joseph looks very cute but a little on the touristy side.
We stopped at a little road side State Park that commemorates the travesty of the Nez Pierce Indians. We took a hike up the hill and to our pleasant surprise were greatest by this meadow and pond and a great hike along the river.
Here is the entrance way to Lake Wallowa- and what an entrance:
At the south end is the State park- and a huge busy campground. It looks like the alps with lots of trails to explore:)
We needed to head back to town for our meeting with Justin, the Nature Conservancy representative, to set things up for us to start work on Monday.
We topped off the day with an excellent meal at a local Mexican restaurant :)
