ABC Revisiting J

We visited Joseph, Oregon in February last year.
(The title of this sculpture is "He who thinks he is invisible.")




Joseph is a very popular locale for artists. Every corner has a bronze sculpture which was struck in one of the local foundries. These pieces highlight the natural and historical background of Eastern Oregon.














The area has a very rich history to depict--home of Chief Joseph and his Nez Perce, settlers, bank robbers.
Joseph is down the road from Imnaha. I posted these stories when we visited.

I've been to Joseph but it's been so many years I don't have many memories of it but after seeing your photos I'd like to go back!
