Brief Directions

North of Fields, the road follows the shores of the Alvord Playa. Somewhere near the north end of the playa a short road heads west up to the head of a canyon where this lone tree can be found.

Description

The eastern slopes of the Steens mountains in eastern Oregon are dry and rocky. The Alvord playa lies just east of the Steens Mountains and will seasonally have water a few inches deep over some sections. This tree seems to grow straight out of the large bolder. On closer inspection, the tree sits in a large crack with roots extending down into the ground.
