Wallowa Lake and the Wallowa Mountains of northeastern Oregon, 1960
Wallowa lake and the Wallowa Mountains of northeastern Oregon offer many recreational advantages, including boating. The word is Nez Perce and was used to describe a structure of wood stakes that they used in catching fish in the Wallowa River. The mountains are different from the other mountains of Oregon, being granite as opposed to volcanic or the result of lava flows. They are rugged and alpine in appearance. The photo was taken in September 1960.
