Oregon Finds New Riches 719 J. Elliott Finlay Mirroring Matterhorn, 10,004 Feet, Is Ice Lake in the Wallowa Mountains Fifty-odd large lakes and three times as many smaller ones adorn this natural wonderland of northeastern Oregon (page 717). Ten peaks, one solid marble, rise to an altitude above 9,000 feet. Mostly national forest, the country is protected from exploitation, but it is open to sightseers and sportsmen. Comfortable quarters are available at a lodge on Wallowa Lake, and camping places have been established for pack trips.
