Week 715 - Joseph, Oregon - 04-26-2020
As you can see from the map, Joseph, Oregon is "not on the way" to anywhere. But, whether you travel by RV or car, it is worth the trip. The drive from any direction is beautiful. We have stayed twice at 5 Peaks RV Park in Joseph. As seen last week we first came from Prineville, Oregon in July 2011. In June 2019 we came from Boise, Idaho.
The mile long town is so picturesque, you will just be happy to be there!
The majestic Wallowa mountains can be seen from every corner of the town.
All the buildings in the town are well maintained with miles of sidewalks made of pavers.
What a lovely place to be if your need auto work.
Grab a fishing raft in town and enjoy fishing at Wallowa Lake, Wallowa River, Grand Ronde River, Snake River and reservoir and more.
If the buildings in town did not have signs, it would be hard to tell if one was a restaurant, hotel or a lumber company.
This is not a hotel, but the Valley Bronze Gallery.
The Wallowa River passes by the west side of Joseph with a little creek passing under Main street.
Art abounds throughout the town.
Every block has multiple art pieces.
Elk are present in the valley (real elk).
Beautiful women are present throughout Joseph.

Restaurants line Main Street, many with live music in the warm months.
It is nice to see that they don't hide their faith.
Just some of the towns businesses.
Our favorite RV park at the north entrance to the town. Just a one mile walk to the see the whole town.
Our spot, site #6 was great and included a private back yard, nice!
Wallowa Lake is just two miles from 5 Peaks RV, one mile through town, one more mile to the lake.
Four mile long Wallowa Lake includes RV camping at the south end of the lake. Camping includes private parks and this, the Wallowa Lake State Park. The picnic table was purposely placed in the river to allows guest to cool their heels.
If you are ever in Central Oregon, head to Joseph, you will not regret it.
With love, Pete, Ellen and Mandy
