Recreational Hot Spots
North Fork John Day
The craggy granite peaks of the 9,000-foot-tall Elkhorn Range jut abruptly from the gentle hayfields and sagebrush surrounding Eastern Oregon's historic Baker City. Scores of alpine lakes and glacier-carved valleys give the Elkhorns the feel of the Wallowas or even the North Cascades. Photo of the Elkhorns from the Hoffer Lakes, near Anthony Lake (12 Kb).
