There’s wood smoke in the air and the trees are looking bare…tis the season, Lake County, the season for being grateful for all our many blessings. As Thanksgiving approaches so does another well-known tradition, Black Friday, and with it comes one more great reason to be thankful: Tall Town Bike & Camp will be celebrating five years of doing business in Lakeview.

Owner/Operator Thom Batty and his wife Shelley, small town Oregonians at heart — Thom originating from The Dalles and Shelley from Pendleton — made the move to Lakeview in 2017 from Oregon City. “We saw the potential and saw a need,” Thom said, “and we always liked the area…both of us from smaller, eastern Oregon towns to begin with, [we] still kind of wanted to go ‘back home’ and get away from the city.”
