Winter vacation 2014. My daughter Rachel and I created a bunch of panoramic images of the snowy mountains framing either side of Baker Valley in Eastern Oregon. Using our little point-and-shoot Canon cameras, we shot multiple exposures in horizontal sequence. Each image below is made up of 3-15 stills stitched together in Adobe Photoshop CC.
On the west side of Baker Valley, lie the Elkhorn Mountains, part of the Blue Mountains, in the northeastern part of Oregon. The highest point in the range is Rock Creek Butte, which is 9,106 feet (2,776 m) above sea level.
Far to the east, but visible from most everywhere in the Baker Valley is the Eagle Cap Wilderness, located in the Wallowa Mountains of northeastern Oregon, within the Wallowaâ€“Whitman National Forest. The Wilderness was established in 1940. In 1964, it was included in the National Wilderness Preservation System. At 8,560 feet, Red Mountain, is the highest peak in Baker County. Sacajawea, the highest peak in the Eagle Cap, is 9,838 feet (2,999 m) above sea level. Eagle Cap is also home of the Hells Canyon National Recreation Area and North America's deepest river gorge at 7,993 feet (2,436 m).
Click on each image to load the high resolution files. Then zoom in so you can see how the mountains loom the way they do to the naked eye.
It's fun to click on the full-sized images, zoom in, and pan by scrolling back and forth.
