Cornucopia, Baker County, Oregon 

Cornucopia: Cornucopia is located high in the Eagle Mountains, at the upper end of Pine Valley and inaccessible in winter. The town was hastily constructed when gold was discovered in 1880. Millions of dollars came from this area where the steep mountains and deep canyons were honeycombed with miles of subterranean shafts or bridged with high tramways.
