Day 3- On Our Way to Baker City!

We made a side trip 
on our way to Baker City

I love the Painted Hills

They never fail to amaze me!

Hwy 26 near John Day, Oregon

The famous Geiser Hotel in Baker City

Oh how fun. I think I mentioned that we were looking for property in Baker City. I'm still looking. I've got to get out of California at some point.

Have a terrific trip honey. Big hugs. ☺

I love that picture of highway 26...what a wonderful drive that must be.

Awesome photos. We lived in Arizona when I was a kid and the desert is so cool.

Really cool! Those painted hills are quite a sight to behold!

Love Baker City, like the shops and eateries. We were just down that way and they just announced they have Cryptosporidium in the water supply. All water must be bottled or boiled first.

I live in Oregon but haven't been to Baker City in years. Must revisit that area.

The Pacific Northwest and Alaska are the two places in this country that i haven't been, ever, and i want to remedy that soon. You've made me remember why i need to put it higher on my list.

I saw your comment in Celia's blog and had to check it out. My great grandfather died in Baker City and is buried there-- kind of a black sheep. The family story has always interested me and finally I had to go (few years back) to find his grave and through someone who contacted me from that learned a bit more about his time there before he had a stroke. I like Baker City a lot for its beauty and the Powder River basin. Gorgeous country
