Good morning from Wallowa-Whitman National Forest and the Hells Canyon National Recreation Area!
Wow, the Wallowa Mountain Loop Road is just awesome!
Super twisty and in great repair, a real ripper of a road!
We ride to one of the Hells Canyon overlooks and what should we see- another Bavarian Land Yacht!
Their K1200LT was SOOOO much cleaner than ours (but looking at their luggage I’m pretty sure they were not camping…)
Welcome to Hells Canyon National Recreation Area!
Kristhawee at Hells Canyon National Recreation Area
Some day when my boy is a bit older and can ride his own bike it would be a blast to come back here on dirt bikes and explore this area further!
Miles and miles of seasonal roads and trails! A lot more than what you see on this map-
I haven’t figured out a good way to stitch these together into a panorama, so use your imagination 😉
Hells Canyon is so deep that you can’t actually see the Snake River. Time to hit the road- another look at the twin LT’s
Bye bye Hells Canyon! See you again!
The amazing Wallowa Mountain Loop road continues!
Eventually the Wallowa Mountain Loop Road ends at a T junction with Highway 86 and we hang a right, heading west towards the tiny little town of Halfway.
Halfway to where? I’m really not sure!
Highway 86 is also a fantastic road!
We stopped in Halfway for gas and a picnic lunch in their historic town park.
Then back on the road headed west towards Baker City-
Highway 86 winds through the hills, offering amazing views along the way-
41 more miles to Baker City!
Clear skies, empty roads, just me and my boy, life is GOOD!
Seems no matter where you go, just about every road in Oregon is a Scenic Byway!

Bye bye Wallowa Whitman National Forest!
