Bill & I saw the original 16mm version of “Crossing the Wallowas” a couple of years ago at the Frostbite Film Festival–what a trip!  Even if you’re not a backcountry ski enthusiast, you’ll appreciate the efforts these men went through to make this film.  Cameras were a lot heavier in the 1950s!

Currently the Bronze Antler Bed & Breakfast is completely open for Friday night, January 22nd.  Plan a quick romantic getaway Oregon style to Joseph and include an evening of great food, dancing and a film.  Top it off with a cozy bed and breakfast the next morning before you start your own winter adventures!
