mule deer hoof prints
on the river bank
Woke up this morning at the end of the road. Somebody up here said Imnaha is the end of the road. Said Oregon is the end of the road state and Wallowa, the end of the road county and Imnaha, the end of the road. I turned my car around on the end-of-the-road road, and I'm headed back to the other coast. Looks like i'll have some time to let my week up the Imnaha River percolate like mergansers flying upstream in formation.
