Trippin to the Alvord

I've been to the Alvord a few times and knew it was a special place but have never camped there. I am now forever attached to the playa and it's surroundings.

Day 1 of 4
I leave Bend around 10am and head out Ford road. Silt hell. Oh yea I've slept less than 4 hours the night before and worked from 1am to 4:30am.
Back to the RR.

The Cows are out




Rode out behind Pine Mountain and headed toward Frederick Butte.

The pumice is always sweet





Took the power lines down to Frederick Butte Road



Then a road and some sweet 2track to Alkali Lake.







Hogback Road to Plush for fuel and a Baco Cheese Burger.



That was the last photo of the day. I left Plush at 3pm and had a lot of unknown terrain to cover. I pieced together a sweet ride over Domingo pass without looking at maps or GPS with some vague directions that wachs gave me the night before.
(turn at the green rock ) BUT, I went home the same way and took LOTS of pics!
370ish miles the first day and an awesome ride!
Alvord is my home tonight. I have company.
