Road Trip > Baker City, OR

by Rainbow Bobbins

From Anthony Lake we headed to Baker City. As we pulled into town we were pulled over by a cop. Open country roads make me want to drive fast. Whoops. Luckily a combination of sweet talk and a clean driving record got us off with a warning. Baker City is another one of those old Oregon frontier towns. We discovered Geiser Grand Hotel was out of affordable rooms so we booked a night at the Oregon Trail Motel – $50 for a room which includes breakfast and redneck neighbors. We cruised around town, got some ice cream and caught the UO vs. Tennessee game at a local pub. Pics:

Hmm...that looks familiar.

Good lookin' cowboy

This is downtown Baker City and, yes, that is a goat on a leash.
