“About as far from any populated place as you can get in the Lower 48 States about says it for Oregon’s remote Steens Mountain.”
“Referred to as the crown jewel of Oregon, Steens Mountain rises dramatically above the Alvord desert (…)”
“Steens Mountain is a large fault-block mountain in the southeastern part of the U.S. state of Oregon.”
“Steens Mountain (…) is one of Oregon’s most treasured landmarks.”
John Hicks, a non riding friend of mine, described it in one word: Powerful! And that word made sense to me.
I returned to the Steens in September of 2010. I had been there in June 2006 (please check the June 2006 archive) and since that time I’ve been thinking of returning to that magical place.
Just a few teaser pictures and videos follow:
