The Mt Emily Summit Road, as I have indicated before, offers some of the most spectacular canyon views you could hope to find anywhere. It is only about a half hour drive from home. it travels through the Umatilla National Fores, USFS 31, off of Interstate 84. The road also provides excellent views of both Meacham Canyon and the Grande Ronde Valley.
The Summit Road going east from Interstate 84 takes one to the turnoff to this gorgeous view from the Summit Guard Station on the Umatilla National Forest. In the spring, the camas and Indian paintbrush are spectacular above Meacham Creek Canyon.!
