All Categories
The mountains that surround the city are breathtaking and magical. There is a shadow of an American Indian in the winter around noon,in the summer it's a perfect landscape of the snow melting off with green patches slowly arising. Lakes and springs that are pure and beautifully blue make Baker city a wonderland for camping, fishing,hiking and sight seeing. The community is happy and help each other when In need and you feel comfort walking down the historic little city.
Review Baker City
Baker City is a great community to raise a family. Its a safe place to live, and has a lot of outdoor activities. Beautiful mountains, lakes and rivers. The people in this area are very kind and friendly.
Overall, the atmosphere is great and I'd definitely choose to live here again. The scenery is amazing and one of the only places where one could find it.
