No Hijack perceived :) (practicing my i before e except after c)

Yeah I rode it in one day. We didn't have to deal so much with accumulation as we did with driving winds and freezing cold. It was pretty brutal. At one point my buddy had to huddle under a space blanket for a while (which was funny because who even brings space blankets on a mountain bike ride - but he had the last laugh). On our way down, when the temperature starting rising with the lower elevations, we had to stop and hold our feet because it felt like we were walking on nails as our feet thawed out.

Quite the adventure.

Wow, great pictures of the Steens Mountain trip! I loved the picture of someone (dirty dog?) holding the fish!

Nice trip report. Too bad you had to mention the order of the antelope. I just spent an hour googling them which of course led into reading some fairly controversial reports of the management of that area. Very interesting.

Awesome photos of the Steens area!!!! Oregon has some totally "cool" and "hot" locations for energizing for the good life!

Thank you Dirty Dog for sharing a bit of your great trip.
