So, by now you're probably planning your Eastern Oregon vacation for the summer. If you like to hike, then basing yourself from Joseph Oregon can be a good compromise if someone in your party likes the creature comforts.
Here's a 2008 video of a couple hiking into Ice Lake. This hike is a long one-day hike (7.7 miles each way from the Wallowa Lake trailhead), but we've had some guests here at the Bronze Antler Bed & Breakfast that did the hike in one day and even took an hour at the top to read a book and enjoy the sunshine!
If you'd like more information for planning your hiking vacation, we suggest getting a copy of Fred Barstad's Hiking Oregon's Eagle Cap Wilderness as a good start. Fred's trail descriptions, drawings and diagrams are very good.
And if you're looking for a place to stay in Joseph Oregon with plenty of creature comforts, we've plenty of room on our availability calendar for your summertime hiking adventures. You can use the buttons at the right of the blog page to link to our calendar. See you on the trail!
