8/7/2023 - Baker City, Oregon (click here to leave comments)

We traveled from Boise to Baker City, Oregon. Baker City was a major stop on the Oregon Trail for cross country travelers in the early 1800's. The Trail would continue basically along I-84 through La Grande and Pendleton, where prior to getting to Pendleton, the route went over Deadman's Pass of roughly 4000 feet down to less than 1000 feet in a couple of miles. This pass is rather significant in that at a vista point on the pass, I lost my Greek fisherman's hat by leaving it on the roof of Tess (DUH!). The view from there was rather spectacular, but my loss was rather sobering. Now I need to go through the process of procuring another...sad!
