Couple Climbs Oregon’s 100 Highest Points
Pam Otley and Jay Avery of Salem recently became the first couple to climb the 100 highest points in Oregon. Of all the places they’ve climbed, their favorite points were found in the Wallowas.
Otely said, “The Pueblos are deserty and all have roundish tops, the Steens are very pretty, but the Wallowas have such a variety of geology and vegetation, and then you get to a summit and there’s just mountains, mountains, mountains around you that can’t be beat all those white granite basins. It’s very much like the Sierra in some places. I could be a spokesperson for the Wallowas.”
