Alvord desert and Steens

Camped down in the Steens and cruised around the Alvord for a bit with my son. Amazing area!


Agreed! It’s quite the hike to get there but totally worth it once you’re there. Hope you also got some Fields station milkshakes and enjoyed the hot springs too.


Grew up in Oregon but never heard of this area, on the bucket list now. Fun to see another family getting out.

Is the loop road open?

What loop road are you referring to? So many roads down there.

The scenic Steens Mountain Loop Road.

Oh yes I know this road. I’ve camped off of it before when page springs was full. The gate was closed this time when we camped last week. But that road is amazing and has super cool stuff as you probably know.
