    Oregon it is, @tomasv

    My first pic is facing southeast-ish and the places you mention, @97707, are all north of here.

    Here is a pic of what the area looks like from a different angle. Its kind of pointing in the Anthony Lakes direction, @97707

    Can't name the peak, but if that's the Anthony Lakes summits north and east of you, maybe you're south of the North Fork John Day and NF73. Up on the 230 or Fruit Creek Rd?

    The tallest peak on my second pic is Rock Creek Butte. You're on to something but not the area you mentioned. From the photo's perspective, Baker City is to the right of that range. I am South of Hwy 7, West and North of Hwy 245. One more pic. If there's no guesses then I'll share the location so the thread moves on. Shoot, I thought this was going to be an easy one. Sorry folks.

    Big Huckleberry Butte. Scratch that!
    You're on Skyline Rd / Rd 11 near the intersection with Rd 1920.

    You got it @trailrider383 Really fun ride to the top. You're up.

    @BackCountryCruizer Skyline / FS 11 was a very enjoyable ride. We just happened to run into it. Great views.

    One more pic of the area with Bald Mountain in the background. The XT250 is on Skyline. Road to the right takes you up.

    Because the architechture looks very Spanish-Colonial. I see the road sign in the lower right indicating it's a one-way street and so I'm stumped. This building seems out of place in Oregon, Washington, and Idaho. With that said, I haven't been everywhere so I'll take a seat and am looking forward to learning where this building is located.

    Yep, it was a cool looking building so I snapped a pic through the pickup window.

    No guesses? It's on a well known pioneer route.

    Not in Oregon. That should narrow it down.
