Steens Mountain And Hart Mountain Antelope Refuge July 2009
Posted 03 August 2009 - 05:58 AM
MANY years ago we rode mountain bikes around the whole loop. It was a definite hoot and a lung cleaning exercise.. with the first day spent in the pain locker all the way up. Spent the first night at Fish Lake and then finished it up the next day. To bad the state of my body these days would never allow it again.. as I would do it in a heartbeat.. what a trip!
I realize this is a little off base since it does not have anything to do with a camper.. but it does have to do with exploring the Steens. I was going to attach some photos from my last trip there when we had our Range Rover. But I need to resize them and I don't have access to my other computer right now. So for anyone who is interested I will offer a link to my website. I am in NO WAY trying to sell myself or my services.. I just TRULY want to share what the Steens, Alvord and local area look like in early winter, late fall.
The home page is the on the surface of the Alvord during this trip.
Under "Walkabout" then "Winter View" .. frames 3,4,5 & 6 is on the road to the top of the Steens in mid November. We made it to the top but could not see a thing and were driving in about a foot of snow by the time we decided to head down.. sort of got carried and forgot to get back in the Rover and leave. We could hardly find our way back down even following our tracks since it was borderline whiteout conditions. I can can attach that photo. Sort of reminds me of what you were up to in New Mexico DD during your trip earlier this year!
DirtyDog.. thanks for making the trip and then consequently motivating me vicariously to get focused and make the trip before this year is out!

Thems some nice photos and great place to visit. Was up there last fall. Cold, windy, rainy with lots of sheep all over. I did the loop and liked the other half of the steens. Didn't make it to Hart Refuge, but did like the Alvord desert. Really cool to see both extremes from both sides!
Hurray. Now, to plan a trip to the refuge.....

Great trip report and definitely great photos! I apologize if it appeared that I was trying to hijack your thread.. definitely was not the intent.
