Description

Located in Southeastern Oregon, the Steens Mountains offers lush green landscape after the snowmelt. During summer months Steens Loop road takes visitors past several lookouts similar to this, however on this trip the road was not yet open, so reaching this point was a 4 mile hike uphill from the nearest open campground. Initially I was disappointed that the road was still closed, but upon reaching the gorge I was rejoicing in the fact that not another soul was to be seen. The elevation here is around 8000 feet, I believe.
