Riding the Rails...

Smoke from wild fires obscures the afternoon sun...
Day into night... smoke from forest fires
obscure the afternoon sky in central Oregon...
From the Alvord Desert and the Steens range of southeastern Oregon we pushed hard to get to the northeast corner of the state.

The numerous forest fires throughout the state closed two of the three routes available to us, forcing us to make a detour.

Just before our eventual destination of Joseph we stopped at the almost-nothing station of Minam to Ride the Rails. It's a leisurely four hours or so pedal through the Oregon countryside on a bike specially designed to ride the local de-commissioned railway.
