The town of Lakeview sits a mere 15 miles from the California border in south-central Oregon. Residents can drive to Reno, Nevada in four hours — half the time it takes to get to Portland.

In the heart of what’s known as the Oregon Outback, surrounding the 2,500 person town, is a stark landscape home to mountains, prairies and a relentless wind. And standing tall at 4,800 feet above sea level, Lakeview is the tallest town in Oregon.

View the slideshow above to see Lakeview’s rugged landscape and learn more about the people who live there.
