Joseph, Oregon a great little art town

Joseph, Oregon a great little art town

We have left Oregon, and are in Idaho waiting for our art show this weekend in Sun Valley. Oregon is a beautiful state and we loved everywhere we went. There are old small towns where the buildings that were built in the late 1800’s are still being used today. The history, and the sheer beauty made it a great trip, and we will definitely go back. We spent a few days in Joseph, Oregon. Someone, somewhere, told us it is a great little art town, and it is. There are 2 or 3 bronze foundries there, and several art galleries. We were told there are numerous artists that live in this small town of 1000. The main street is packed with cute shops, galleries, and places to eat or drink. There are large bronze sculptures everywhere, and the town prides itself on the art walk that is there for all to see and enjoy.

Wildflowers in Oregon

Wildflowers in Oregon

Holy cow, where does time go? We have been so busy going to new places, mountain man rendezvous’, and just having a great time. Currently we are in Oregon. I have never been here before, and I love it! We came here to go to the Pacific primitive mountain man rendezvous. It was held just outside of Seneca, Oregon in a beautiful secluded canyon. 10 days of being completely unplugged, and living in a world of 150 years ago. I have pictures, and more about the rendezvous on Roxy the traveling dog today.
 We left there on Saturday, and came here to Pendleton. I wanted to go to the woolen mill, and I am so glad we did. More on that tomorrow on Roxy the traveling dog for Artsy Fartsy Tuesday.
While we were camping, we went hiking through the woods and I found some awesome flowers to photograph.  I love columbine, and I have never seen one like this. They were amazingly beautiful.
