The Wallowas and the Elkhorns have a lot in common — but the design of their hiking trails isn’t on the list
In terms of their hiking trails, the Wallowa Mountains are summer camp, and the Elkhorns are Marine basic training.
These two ranges, which bestow on Baker Valley its almost unfairly
scenic backdrops — the Elkhorns close by to the west, the Wallowas a
bit farther and to the northeast — are in other respects much more like
siblings than, say, second cousins.
