In the remote corner of the remote corner of Northeast Oregon are the Wallowa Mountains. On the eastern edge of the state, looking down into the Snake River Canyon is Hat Point, a drive-up six-point summit. 

Head east on 350 from Joseph, Oregon 30 miles to Imnaha. From there, you'll take Hat Point Road another 10 miles to the lookout and summit of Hat Point. This gravel road is steep in places, and narrow, but can be driven in a passenger car.

You can climb to the midpoint of the lookout for a slightly improved view, but the vistas here are incredible from anywhere. We found a bench and a few trees along the Snake River Canyon rim and set up there. 

Obviously you'd be lucky to work anyone on 2m FM in a place this remote. We had a fine time working folks on HF.
