Doesn’t Elly look adorable next to that gigantic truck!?
We are dabbling in a bit of Eastern Oregon research. Doyle – over at the Baker City Chamber of Commerce – was immensely helpful. I’m getting antsy to cycle the nearby Elkhorn Scenic Byway with my friend Prisbe (perfect way to recover from her knee surgery!). There are real live ghost towns on route, which is smack dab in the middle of ridiculously gorgeous mountain country. I’ll take it.
If you do find yourself in Baker City in northeastern OR, look for Bella Main Street Market on the historic main drag (there is a Cycle Oregon bike rack out front). Besides having organic stuff and foofie treats, they have a huge cycling collage in the back! Just ask the barista to point you the way.
