Seeking route Baker City, OR to Carson City, NV

I have a reservation in Heppner Sep. 6, and Baker City Sep. 7 and 8. I have the next week scheduled as vacation and am looking for some interesting riding on smaller pavement. I have a friend that lives in Carson City, Nevada and haven't seen him for a couple years. Google maps indicates that following a major route would be 520 to 560 miles. So this should be doable as a nice two day trip on back roads. Looking at Google maps so far hasn't shown me a good route on smaller roads with a motel around mid-point.

Any thoughts of a good paved route to Carson City from Baker? Remember I want pavement and a motel around mid-point.

If that doesn't pan out I might head toward Idaho or Montana but first I'd like to see what options there are for getting to Nevada without using major highways.

I would ride Baker City to John Day and follow Highway 395 south to Lakeview for a motel. You can then follow 395 all the way to Carson City or take an alternate route once you get to Alturas or Susanville.
