Oregon Field Guide


Gateway to Devil’s Canyon and the Snake river in northeastern Oregon, Imnaha is a small, isolated community, home to friendly, independent people as well as the occasional cougar. With a population of about two hundred, this tiny community attracts few newcomers due to its isolation, rugged terrain and intense summer heat. Steeped in history, this land was once home to the Nez Perce Indians and then later, Euro-American settlers.
