VLS_Guy, what was funny is the fact that I live in Lassen County. The pictures were taken in Oregon. The first one is Dropping into the Lake Abert Basin north of Lakeview. The second one is north of Baker City.

I was going to guess Oregon. My brother and I picked up my mom and aunt and drove out to Hermiston for my middle brothers wedding in June. It sure is pretty country. I really liked Idaho and Oregon both.
