    Greg…
    Thanks for your kind remarks. I have NOT done Steens Moutain… yet. It is on my hit list. ๐Ÿ™‚
    I’ve only been in French Glen when there is to much snow to go up the mountain.

    The Alvord Desert has been a target, though. A gallery of pictures I’ve taken of it are here:

    Click on the individual images for a larger view. Click on the image again to return to the gallery. Though a classic playa, Oregonians don’t seem to call it that. They like the term ‘desert’. lol!!

    The last image in that series is of snow covered Steens Mountain as seen from Mann Lake.

  4. Great blog. I live in Tucson, and am an avid landscape/wildlife photographer as well. Maybe we can go on a shoot some time.
