For the 4th of July weekend, we decided to get out and see another of Oregon's geologic gems, Wallowa Lake.
Aside from being a rare large lake in eastern Oregon, Wallowa Lake is one of the best examples of a glacial morain damming a valley to form a lake. From a view point off the Mt. Howard Tram, the moraines forming the boundary of the lake are easily visible.
