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

      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.
