We sit at the edge of one of the largest, enclosed circular valleys in the United States, with over a million acres of fertile soil surrounded by snow-capped mountain peaks. Native Americans once roamed the Grande Ronde Valley during the summer months, gathering food for the winter, and called it "The Valley of Peace."
