Santorini Greece Lost Atlantis?

Wisdom House, Baker City and Eastern Oregon

Eastern Oregon Photographer’s perspective: Driving on I-84 from LaGrande to Baker, the sky was glorious. My first memory of Baker City I was four and upstairs in my great-grandfather’s house.  My mom was putting on a fancy coat, and a gorgeous cream colored antique settee was beside me.  It was dark and we were getting […]
