We picked up our mail in Clarkston, then drove south on SR-129. We'd driven this route a few years ago, but from the other direction. This time, the drive was totally different! The Washington side consists of about 9 miles or so of 6% grades with lots of switchbacks on a very narrow road...last time, we were on the inside on this stretch of road, but this time, we were on the outside...yikes! The Oregon side isn't quite as long, and since you're going uphill, it doesn't seem as bad.

We found a nice place to camp in the Wallowa-Whitman National Forest about 1/4 mile north of the Joseph Canyon Overlook. It's not a regular campground, but has been used for camping in the past.

Miles driven: 125.9
GPS coordinates: N45 50.365 / W117 15.926
