“At the edge of the lake”
In Nez Perce, Iwetemlaykin, means ‘at the edge of the lake’. The park adjoins the Old Chief Joseph Gravesite and cemetery at the north end of Willowa Lake. It is about 65 acres including the pond and walking paths. Sacred land, it is open to the public and offers varied terrain and view of the surrounding mountains.
Sunset at the park was a perfect ending to my 2 weeks in the Wallowas.
