Meet the Steens

The view from the top of the Steens' range...
Awesome views from the top of the Steens...
The Alvord desert lies in the rain shadow of the Steens mountain range to the west. The range rises to about ten thousand feet above the desert floor.

Despite the smoke from the numerous forest fires throughout the state, we were still able to appreciate the grandeur of these mountains. At one point, we discovered a hidden memorial among the rocks of a viewpoint.
