Stagecoach stop reverts to meadow status

Sled Springs
Sled Springs once offered respite for weary travelers headed west to Elgin, Oregon. These travelers arrived on wagons, stagecoach or horses beginning sometime before the turn of the 20th century and continuing until about 1925.

It also was a railroad logging camp, inhabited by about 300 people, after that. Today it is a quiet meadow, part of the Wallowa-Whitman National Forest.

Sled Springs is located on the highway that connects Asotin, Washington, with Enterprise, Oregon. The highway is called 129 in Washington and 3 in Oregon.
