Class is still in session as I learn my way around Wallowa County, Oregon. In my column the La Grande Observer newspaper published for ten months, I told the story of how I landed here and shared the different things I’ve learned about living in this place that could very well be another planet. It’s unlike anywhere I could have imagined, and I love it.
I’ve called this place home for 2 ½ years now and still have so much to learn. If you followed my column, just consider that we switched rigs, because we still have many places to go, people to meet, and lessons to learn. If you’re a new arrival, jump in my truck with the rest of us, for we’re going for a ride…
And when I say a new outfit, I'm not talking about a fashionable ensemble of clothing. Around here, an outfit is referring to a vehicle. For us, we're switching from the vehicle of the printed page to blogging. That's all.
Same place. Same people. Same Wallowa Gal.
