I can't remember If I posted this short video on here or not. I flew a couple of gals into this lodge for breakfast. The Minam Lodge is 16 miles East of LaGrande, OR. The closest road is 8 miles away from the Lodge. It is right next to the Eagle Cap Wilderness area, in NE Oregon, and is on the Minam River. Enjoy.

Wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
Nice video!

I've been over that exact same spot. I remember it well because that is where I lost my engine driven fuel pump on my way between BOI and MWH. :rolleyes:

Wow! Nice video! And what a small world! I was born at the Grande Ronde Hospital there!

I see you are tied to the NW by the WSC avatar. Once a cougar always a cougar. Have you ever been into the Minam Lodge? Bob

No sir, unortunately. It looks BEAUTYFUL!

We usually spend 1 week in the summer at Wallowa Lake. Can't seem to tear myself away from that little slice of heaven.:)


I was in Charlotte last week and saw a passenger wearing a WSU shirt. I jumped out of the plane and ran over to him to shake his hand. Funny enough, we both graduated the same year (1998).:rawk:

Wallowa Lake is a beautiful glacier lake. I have a video on You tube of a flight over the lake. I was on a return flight from the Minam Lodge and we took the long way home. I will try to find it.

Ahhhhh. I miss that place. It is amazing how beautiful the water in that lake is and how many stars would fill the sky at night.

My Aunt has a farm in Enterprise. When I turned 12, I started working the fields in the summer for extra money. We would drive to the Joseph airport to watch planes all day on the weekends.
