    This is great news. One will not help repopulate the area, but if one migrated, hopefully more will.

    • Phil,

      I think you meant to comment on the post above, but NE Oregon, in combination with extreme Western Idaho has a lot of places for rare wildlife.

      It is a continuation of Idaho in many ways. Topographically it is similar, though split by the enormous canyon of the Snake River (Hells Canyon).

      Some of the same unpleasant attitudes are present in this part of Oregon, although there are knowledgeable and friendly people too. Check out this blog from Baker, Oregon.

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."
