    So a good safe trip so far, why booger it up now right? Just one basin away from home base but to go from one basin to another you must climb then descend. With 6 mi vis and OC at 800í. Follow the road you say, until that road climbs into the freezing fog. Itís a trap, No good! So I am stuck in Baker, OR but if I am gonna be stuck, the Baker, OR fbo is as nice as it gets. Rustic, cute, and festive too with holiday scents, some great art, collectibles and aviation lore. Consider this, Bobby Kennedy walked this ground 14 days prior to his assassination. This was the hot bed during the Gold Rush also. What a trip! 36hrs stick time so far and 2 to go. Enjoy pics Burley, ID over Boise onto Baker.

    It is no fun to be stuck on the ground. Especially when youíre getting close to your destination.

    The Baker City FBO does have some eclectic interior decorations. Spooky looking stuff.

    The inversion covering so much of the NW is supposed to die soon.

    So too much low stuff to fly east a little ways and drop down into Hells Canyon and get to LWT and beyond?

    Canít be far from that iím sure. No canít get east to get to Hells canyon. Road rises in to fog all points out of the basin. Today snow n rain moving through with Saturday looking better. Went to local museum on The Oregon Trail. Remember reading about that in 9th grade history. Wonder what todayís 9th graders get for history lesson. Here are some local pics.
