Northeastern Oregon Adventures

In June, we took off for Northeastern Oregon to explore a region we had not gone before. We visited the  Strawberry Mountain Wilderness, Dixie Butte in the Blue Mountains, Wallowa Mountains, and Oregon Trail Museum.

It looks like your family had a good time on the top of Mt. Howard in the Wallowas--it's an easy way to gain 4000' of elevation by taking the gondola!

Do you have any pictures of what used to be called "Mt. Sinai" near Lake Wallowa? I do not know what it is called now.
