Morman Basin, Baker County, Oregon
Morman Basin-Amelia-Clarksville-Eldorado-Malheur City & Cemetery-Rainbow Mine-Cake. This intriguing list of sites are all located in an historic area between Bridgeport & Rye Valley. The roads are all unpaved, the scenery is spectacular and history abounds. You can reach this high plateau from the Clarks Creek road 5 miles east of Bridgeport in the Burnt River Valley and emerge on I-84 at Rye Valley exit just north if Huntington.
Webmaster's Note: Baker County Historian Gary Dielman tells me it is only 1 mile east of Bridgeport
