The Blue Mountains, one of the country’s oldest mountain ranges, cap the upper limits of Union County. And the rugged Wallowas dominate the horizon to the Southeast –one of Oregon’s Seven Wonders. Snow-capped well into the summer months, our mountains offer a bounty of activities for the adventurous spirit.
The mighty Grande Ronde River snakes through our valley, offering everything from slow floats, to white water rapids, to fishing and birding opportunities in its wetlands and tributaries. Beautiful Wallowa and Morgan Lakes are prime summer relaxation destinations. And visitors can enjoy the unique warm waters of Elgin’s Warm Springs Pool or a hot soak at Hot Lake Springs.
