Exploring Winter Along The Elkhorn Scenic Byway in Baker County Oregon

A few wintery photos from our recent travels along Elkhorn Scenic Byway in Baker County.

Spent some time exploring the Elkhorn Scenic Byway this winter. Lots of snow this winter made for some dramatic landscapes along the byway and in the small towns along the way. Baker City's historic downtown and neighborhoods were especially picturesque in the snow and we even spotted a little wildlife along the way

This scenic byway circles through the Elkhorn mountains of Northeast Oregon beginning and ending in Baker City and passing through small towns like Sumpter, Granite, and Haines. The drive is incredibly scenic with wide open panoramic views across the Baker valley, high alpine forests, and following pristine rivers and creeks along the way. In the winter Anthony Lakes is home to Oregon's highest base elevation ski resort. In the summer the pristine alpine lake is a fishing and camping destination. For more information about the Elkhorn Scenic Byway or other Baker County backroads and Scenic byways visit Baker County Tourism’s website www.basecampbaker.com
