This little narrow gauge railway is far from anyplace, but is well worth the trip just to see what a group of mostly volunteers can accomplish. The railroad is a partial recreation of one of the last narrow gauge lines to operate in the United States.For pictures and much more information, see my article, Riding the Sumpter Valley.more
The loop that goes from Baker City to Sumpter then Anthony Lakes and back to Baker City is another great road for riding. The scenery is great, the road follows one river or another for most of its course.The road at Anthony Lakes was still closed with snow when we were there in May 2006 so we only rode as far as Sumpter and back to Baker City.

The road through the Canyon will take you from Baker City, to Joseph and then to Enterprise. You can then either do the ride in reverse or continue on to La Grande and head back south to Baker City. All secondary roads are great - minimum traffic and lots of curves. You will feel like the road was built for you and your bike.Stop at Scotty's for...more

Although my hubby and I both laughed when we ordered the chicken fried steak. We had heard so much about this American breakfast dish and then when we got our food we...more

It is a family-run Mexican restaurant.When we pulled up in front of the place, I have to admit it looked a little rough. I never would have stopped if it hadn't been recommended to us. Once inside, we found the place clean and...more
This brewpub was absolutely jumping every night. They have live blues music on the weekends and the band that was playing the night we were there was very good.
They have an assortment of hand-crafted beers, of which we tried several. We really liked their IPA.
I am told that they have very good food here as well, but we never sampled anything but barley sandwiches!
