We've been up to Wallowa Lake & Joseph twice now in the past month, and I can't get over how beautiful it is there!
The scenery is breath taking and I love driving by the old restored barns, and the patchwork of fields that make up the farms & ranches in the community.
As we drove around, I thought about how neat it'd be to live in the area.
But then....I thought about what it what it's like to live there in the winter...because in Wallowa County, the farmers have chains for their combines for a reason.
Winter starts early there and doesn't let up until May or June many years.
And then I remember why I'm happy to call Hermiston home! :)
