Did you ever move to baker city? I am 34 and my boyfriend of 7 years is 28 years old. We have a 6 year old son. We have been doing research for a safe family place like baker city as top of our list. We are living in Louisiana at this moment and thinking about moving in June of 2016

Baker City is pretty wonderful. I spent a year there and could have happily spent many more, but I wanted to be closer to family, so I moved back over the mountains. But, I'm self-employed and can live anywhere. From everything I've heard, the job situation isn't great in Baker City, but if you can make it work, you could a lot worse.

Went for a drive today for no other reason than it was a nice day.

The view of the Wallowa Mountains from Keating Road while driving down to the valley is always nice.

I miss Eastern Oregon. Thanks for the reminder of how beautiful it is out there.

Anthony Lake is one of several lakes at 7000+ feet altitude in the Elkhorn Mountains of Baker County..

Really great hiking, a Forest Service campground, a boat ramp for small boats, etc.

Western Oregonians don't know about it or they think that all of Eastern Oregon is a desert so it is never crowded.

Here is an interactive 360 panorama I made.

Click on “full screen” at the upper right and use your mouse and mouse wheel to move around and zoom:

Very nice.

Did you use a drone to get that shot? If so, what kind?

It was made with a DJI Phantom 4 drone. It's a little more than a year old so the newer ones have cameras that are even better.

The drone camera takes multiple photos, 4 rows of 8 photos each row 45 degrees apart to make a full circle.

For the top row is the camera is angled 15 degrees up (drone max), the second row the camera is angled down somewhat, the third row angled down even more, and so on.

Once the 4 rows are completed the camera points straight down and takes 4 more photos 90 degrees apart.

A total of 36 photos.

The drone does this automatically. You position the drone where you want and push “start panorama”.

The 36 photos are then stitched together on a computer to make the panorama.

Scattered among the other conifers in the Elkhorn Mountains in Baker County are the Tamarack trees. They are deciduous conifers. In October the chlorophyll in their needles breaks down and they turn from green to brilliant gold. In November they fall off and they grow back in the spring.
