Steens Mountain

I wanted to get in another long ride before monsoon season set in, so decided to go to Steens MTN in SE Oregon. After a slabbing it to Burns for the night, and gorging on 7.95 steak and eggs at the Apple Peddler, headed out. The road out of Frenchglen is thick gravel, no fun, but when you get to BLM land the road is high speed hard dirt.

Heres a shot of Krieger Gorge...

I could not do the "loop" due to the road being washed out five miles past this sign...

Looking east from near the summit...

Looking down from the same vantage point...

This is from the closest you can get to the least without hiking

And finally near the same place...when I stopped, it was to snap a picture of a antelope, but it bounded away before that happened.
