Hell on Wheels – Day 5 – Freedom Rings
For those who want to ride every mile of the week’s offerings, this is a pretty easy day. Except for the short hill between Wallowa Lake and Joseph (down on the way out, up on the way home), the day is mostly flat, traveling through verdant agricultural fields of the Wallowa Valley. The lunch stop is on the grounds of the county courthouse in the center of Enterprise. After lunch, the return route uses short sections of road that were used en route to Enterprise, but in the opposite direction providing a different view of the valley and mountains.
