Lakeview

At 4,800 feet, Lakeview is the highest town in Oregon. For years, it's been anchored by the Old Perpetual Geyser at Hunter's Hot Springs, which erupted up to 60 feet every 90 seconds. The geyser's been dormant since 2009, however, possibly as a result the town's digging a geothermal well nearby. The Abert Rim is still there, though, about 20 mi to the north of town, the region's best-known
