Great rodeo action in Joseph
Long before Joseph was known as Oregon’s bronze capital and that beautiful little arts community at the foot of Wallowa Lake and the Wallowas, Joseph was best known for its rodeo and its sign telling people not to “drive like hell’’ through town.
For 64 years now, Joseph has been known for Chief Joseph Days, one of the best small-town rodeos in the country. The tradition continues this week, and like the town, it just keeps getting better. And that’s saying a lot, because Chief Joseph Days has had a reputation as a great rodeo for most of its 64 years.
